Dealer Notes
Nicholson, Francis (1753-1844), watercolour painter and teacher. He received lessons from a German artist, Conrad Martin Metz. Nicholson had a number of patrons including; John Stuart, first marquess of Bute, Walter Fawkes of Farnley Hall, and Sir Henry Tuite and his wife. He also had a considerable teaching practice which included ladies of fashion. His contemporary reputation was such that drawings were fraudulently sold as being by Nicholson within his own lifetime.
