This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Lynn, MA on March 14, 1900.  Nicholson earned his masters degree from the CGA and his doctorate degree at MIT.  From 1917-56 he worked as an international spy for the U.S., Canada, and England while painting in his leisure.  He painted in California before settling in Orange upon retirement from espionage.  He remained there until his demise in Los Angeles on Feb. 6, 1985.  His early work is representational and later work abstract.  As a scientist, he developed the ABC filter system for Eastman Kodak.
