Mrs Edmund GOSSE
Nellie GOSSE (nee Ellen 'Nellie' Epps) was a landscape painter and sister of Lady ALMA-TADEMA (Laura EPPS, 1852-1909), also an artist. Whybrow notes her presence in St Ives (STIAC) between 1901-10, although the author Edmund GOSSE had visited the Arts Club previously in the summer of 1889. The Gosses were friends of the Leslie Stephens family at Talland House, St Ives. Their own home, and Mrs Gosse's sending-in address, was in London. She exhibited in several major galleries and at Smith Street.
Their youngest daughter, Sylvia GOSSE (1881-1968), was a devoted friend and carer of Walter Richard SICKERT in his later years.
