Name: Burr H. Nicholls
Dates: (1848 - 1915)
Nationality: American
Biography: Burr H. Nicholls was born in 1848 in Lockport, New York. He studied with Lars Gustaf Sellstedt (1819-1911) in Buffalo, New York, and then with Émile-Auguste Carolus-Duran (1837-1917) in Paris. Nicholls and the artist Frank Penfold (1849-1921), who was also from Lockport and had attended the Buffalo Academy, were both at Pont-Aven in Brittany, France, in 1880-82. Many of the American artists working there at that time, such as Thomas Hovenden (1840-1895) and William Lamb Picknell (1853-1897), were concerned with figure painting in broad sunlight. In 1883 Nicholls worked in Venice. He returned to New York City in 1884 and eventually settled in Stamford, Connecticut. Nicholls's work includes landscapes, portraits, and genre paintings. He exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York from 1873 to 1895, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia from 1882 to 1895 (including paintings of Brittany in 1882 and again in 1890), and at The Art Institute of Chicago in 1888, 1889, and 1894. His paintings are in the Peabody Institute in Baltimore, the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
