George Washington Nicholson

George Washington Nicholso
Seascape with figures
Born in Salem County, New Jersey, George Washington Nicholson spent most of his artistic life in Philadelphia. He studied in Paris under Gabriel-Eugene Isaby and travelled extensively in England, France and the orient. His travels provided him subjects for a great number of his paintings. Nicholson was a prolific painter of landscapes, often with a dramatic or historical content. Stylistically, his work shows the obvious influence of J.M.W.Turner. In recognition of his accomplishment, Nicholson was made an Associate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Late in life he retired to his native New Jersey and died in Hammonton.

Exhibited at: the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1867), the National Academy of Design (1874), the Brooklyn Art Association (1875), the Art Institute of Chicago (1900), and the American Art Society (1902).

In the collection of: the Reading Public Museum, Widener University Art Gallery and Collection, the Sewell C. Biggs Museum, and the Arkansas Arts Center.
