Nano Reid RHA Biography and Works - Ross's Auctioneers & Valuers
Nano Reid RHA Born in Drogheda, Co. Louth, Nano Reid (1905-1981) was an Irish landscape artist, figure painter and portraitist. Her expressionistic style was developed through her education at Dublin Metropolitan School of Art (now the National College of Art and Design) under Harry Clarke and Seán Keating, at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiere and at the Central School in London, studying under Bernard Meninsky.
Reid exhibited at the Dawson Gallery in Dublin, the High Lane Art Gallery and regularly with the Royal Hibernian Academy. Straying from home grounds, the artist has also shown work at the Exhibition of Contemporary Irish Art in Aberystwyth (1953), the Guggenheim International Award Exhibition (1960) and the Twelve Irish Painters Show (1963) in New York.
She represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale (1950) and won the Douglas Hyde Gold Medal at the Oireachtas for the best history painting (1972). Retrospectives of Nano’s work were held by the arts Council and the Northern Ireland Arts Council, at the Taylor Galleries in Dublin (1984), the Droichead Arts Centre in Drogheda (1991) and at Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, Co. Mayo (1999).
