Anthony Rossiter

British 1926-2000 

Anthony Rossiter was a British landscape painter born in London in 1926. He attended Eton College, where he showed early artistic talent. From 1947 to 1951, Rossiter studied painting at Chelsea College of Arts (then the Chelsea Polytechnic) under Henry Moore and Robert Medley. Prior to this, he had served with the Welsh Guards in Greece where he suffered a nervous breakdown and a femoral thrombosis, which left him temporarily paralysed and caused him to be medically discharged from the Army. After his studies, he taught art in schools and then at Bristol Polytechnic (now University of the West of England) from 1960 to 1983. Rossiter was also a writer and his autobiographies, The Pendulum (1966) and The Golden Chain (1970), won Arts Council awards. He developed friendships with notable authors Robert Frost and WH Auden. Auden even granted him the privilege of painting a series of portraits. Rossiter’s works are in prominent public collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, as well as the Ashmolean Museum and St John’s College in Oxford.
