Biography Sydney Lough Thompson
Sydney Lough Thompson had already rejected the idea of studio practice and embraced the impressionist hallmark of plein air painting by the time he returned to New Zealand in 1933 after long periods in Concarneau, Brittany. The Mahurangi area had become a haven for artists in 1940s and ‘50s, the open landscape and light inspiring a new generation of New Zealand artists.
In 1943 Thompson worked in the North Island along with English born artist Olivia Spencer Bower. Thompson typically painted in a post-impressionist style.
