Sylvia Gosse was a painter of street scenes, interiors, and still-life figures in oils, and an engraver. The daughter of writer and critic Sir Edmund Gosse, and the landscape painter Nellie Epps, her interest in painting developed while at school in France. Gosse then studied at the St John’s Wood School of Art, Royal Academy Schools and the Westminster School of Art under Walter Sickert. From 1909-14 she taught at Sickert’s Rowlandson House, London, School. His influence is evident in much of her work.
As a woman she was prevented from joining the Camden Town Group, but was one of the first female members of the London Group in 1913, and also showed at the New English Art Club from 1911 and the Royal Academy from 1912 onward. She had a one-woman show at the Carfax Gallery in 1916, and was made a member of the Royal Society of British artists in 1929.
