About : Anthony Rossiter RWA MSIAD (1926-2000) - Artist from Litton, Somerset

Anthony Rossiter RWA MSIAD (1926-2000) was a British landscape painter who was educated at Eton and studied painting at Chelsea Art School from 1947-51.

He was a Romantic visionary,  whose particular heaven was the Mendip Hills in Somerset. Stormy seas, gnarled hedgerows, tumbling stone walls, broken gates, reflections in water, spring blossom and ploughed fields were all his subject matter. His works also included still life, and portraits, including, most notably, that of W.H.Auden.

His work can be seen in various public collections in the UK and USA, including, amongst others, The Victoria and Albert Museum London, The Ashmolean Oxford, The Government Art Collection, London Transport, The General Post Office, The Robert Frost Collection, and is also held by many private collectors

The Anthony Rossiter estate is now handled by his daughter, Annalisa Duff, and further information can be obtained from the website:
