Biography

Nicolas Granger-Taylor (born 1963) is a contemporary artist whose work primarily comprises portraits, female nudes, and still lifes, painted in oil on canvas. His work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy, London, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Education

Nicolas Granger-Taylor was educated at Latymer Upper School, Hammersmith. He began his art training at Kingston Polytechnic (1981–82), followed by a three-year degree course in Fine Art at Bristol Polytechnic (1982–85). He took a Postgraduate Diploma in Painting the Royal Academy Schools, London (1987–90).

Critical reception

Nicholas Usherwood in the RA Magazine wrote: "He is obsessed by light and power of light, as it reveals objects both animate and inanimate, to create a disturbing sense, in de Chirico's memorable phrase, 'of still lifes come alive or figures become still'." Mary Rose Beaumont wrote in the Art Review: "A fine draughtsman with a firm grasp of composition, Granger-Taylor combines sensuous handling of the paint with a sensitive feeling for his subject."
