Listing DetailsWilliam Kinloch Sprott (1864-1893) Born in Dunedin, William Kinloch Sprott developed his interest in painting while living in Auckland. He discovered the work of Stanhope Forbes and the Newlyn School, an art colony in Cornwall, while travelling in England. Their ethos, with its emphasis on painting in a pure setting with natural light, greatly influenced his paintings.
Returning to New Zealand, Sprott studied at the Canterbury College School of Art from 1887 and later taught there. Dying at the age of 29, Sprott's painting career was tragically short.
