Dates: (1816 - 1893)
Nationality: English
Biography: Richard Henry Nibbs was a professional musician who turned to painting after he received an inheritance. After living for some time in London, he settled in the seaside town of Brighton. He was particularly known for his coastal scenes, which were executed in Sussex and elsewhere on the southern coast of England as well as in France, Germany, and Holland. He also made prints of shipping and architectural subjects, some of which were published in his Marine Sketchbook of Shipping Crafts and Coast Scenes in 1850. Between 1841 and 1889 he exhibited marine, landscape, genre, and battle subjects, including thirty-six works at the Royal Academy in London. His paintings are now in numerous English museums, including the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Brighton Art Gallery.
