Nugent Herrmann WELCH,  (1881-1970):


Born in Akaroa, Banks Penisula, the son of artist Joseph Welch, Nugent Welch was a self taught painter. He became a professional artist in 1909, after leaving his job at the Wellington Harbour Board.


The official war artist for the NZ Expeditionary force in WWI, he also became a well known plein air painter of Wellington landscapes, with particular attention to atmospheric weather affects.


He was associated with James Nairn's Silverstream Group. His work is represented in all the major publi galleries in New Zealand as well as many private collections.
