Born Middletown, Connecticut, in 1934, Tom Nicholas has been at the forefront of American landscape painting for almost a half century. He has earned an esteemed position as one of the country’s most widely recognized landscape painters. After formal studies as a scholarship student at the School for Visual Arts, NYC, from 1953-56, he was awarded a Greenshield Grant for two years of independent painting abroad and in the USA. His paintings are noted for their elegant composition, fine detail and romantic sensibility.

Nicholas is an Academician of the National Academy of Design and a Dolphin Fellow of the American Watercolor Society. One of the youngest members ever elected to the National Academy, he has been honored with nearly 300 awards and medals and has created 40 one-man shows throughout the country. Since 1960, he has painted throughout Europe and the United States. His work is in many private and public collections including the Farnsworth Museum, Maine; the Butler Institute of American Art, Ohio; Springfield Art Museum, Missouri; Peabody Essex Museum, Massachusetts and the Hispanic Society of America, New York City. He has 23 images in the archives of the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of American Art, Washington, DC.
