Brief Biography-Andrew Nicholl was born in Belfast in 1804. He spent seven years as an apprentice printer, during which time he learned to paint and draw. Nicholl exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin and the Royal Academy in London through his patron Sir James Emerson Tennent. He became a full member of the RHA and was a co-founder of the Belfast Association of Artists. Nicholl applied the method of sgraffito in his paintings, where he grated the paint for a highlight effect. He died in London in 1886.
