Profile

Biography

Nick studied Fine Art at the Kent Institute of Art and Design before completing an MA in the History of Design at the Royal College of Art. He subsequently taught in further and higher education and worked as a design strategist in industry before returning to study for a PhD at York, where his research interests focus around British visual culture in the mid-nineteenth century.

His thesis examines the relationship between progressive artistic practices in London and Paris during the 1860s and seeks to re-evaluate the role of the London artworld in shaping the pictorial practice of ‘Realism’ in France, by considering the example of the intellectual network of The Department of Science and Art at South Kensington as a source for new painting in both cities.
