Tom Nicholas, American (1934 - )

Tom Nicholas

"One of the most widely recognized of modern realists, Tom Nicholas was born in

Connecticut in 1934.  He was awarded a scholarship to the School of Visual Arts in New York and later traveled extensively in Europe through a Greenshields Memorial Foundation grant.
Noted for the lyrical rhythm and technical mastery of his paintings, Nicholas displays a profound sense of place reflected in a deeply poetic expression.
Nicholas was elected an Associate of the National Academy of Design in 1963 and a full Academician in 1970, one of the youngest artists ever to be so honored.  He is a Dolphin Fellow of the American Watercolor Society, a member of the Knickerbocker Artists and Allied Artists of America.  A bibliography of critical studies of his work includes articles in the American Artist, Today's Art, Western Art Digest, Southwest Art and The Artists - England and America."

The delightful freshness that Tom Nicholas brings to every painting is the result of painstaking preparation - dozens of drawings and many small color sketches.  Nicholas has won 49 major awards and has had more than two dozen one-man shows.  His works hang in 14 museums. In this painting, of a sugarhouse where maple syrup is boiled down, Nicholas has captured the magnificence of the Vermont countryside in winter.
