    Nigel Gosling
    Gallery One, London

    Nigel Gosling (1909-1982) was art critic of The Observer from 1962 to 1975, having joined the paper in 1950 as general arts and features editor. Under the pseudonym Alexander Bland (shared with his wife Maude Lloyd) he was also its ballet critic from 1955 to 1982, and author of a number of books on the subject (including the editing of Rudolf Nureyev’s autobiography).

    As an art critic he helped to push into the international sphere the work of British artists such as Francis Bacon, David Hockney, and Graham Sutherland. He also wrote on Roy Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg and Mark Rothko and modernists such as Kandinsky and Klee. Yet his wide-ranging interest and expertise also extended to Rembrandt, Goya, Gustav Doré, Delacroix, and the photographer Nadar.
