Life and career

Charles Wynne Nicholls was born into a middle class family in Dublin on 20 October 1831. His father, John Nicholls, was an apothecary of 48 Dawson Street in Dublin. His mother was Martha Craven.

Nicholls studied art at the Royal Dublin Society's Schools and the Royal Hibernian Academy. He began to exhibit in 1859 as a Member of the Royal Hibernian Academy. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy as well. He left Ireland for London in 1864, but continued to exhibit in Dublin for the rest of his life. He lived at 44 Halsey Street in London.[1]

A representative of the Victorian painting genre of portraits and city landscapes, he was a very capable artist. His genre and Oriental scenes were very popular and found a ready market among Victorian art collectors. [2]
