Harry Nance - Sheffield Artist


Harry Nance was a Sheffield-born artist who discovered his talent relatively late in life. He was well into his sixties when he began painting local scenes and landscapes and in his seventies when he first thought of uniting his love of horses and horse racing with painting in oils and pastels. Harry's only formal training in art was a brief correspondence course in the 20's, but he went on to exhibit in London, Paris, Sheffield and Newmarket. Collectors of his work include: The Duke of Devonshire; The National Stud; Danton Stud Farm; and Darley Stud Management Company (Dalham Hall Stud, Newmarket). His best-known subjects were the horses Mill Reef, Red Rum, Grundy and Star Appeal and the racecourse at Longchamp near Paris.
