William Packer, Art Critic
“Nicholas Charles Williams is one of British Art’s well-kept secrets.. even so his reputations is growing fast as both one of the most accomplished figurative artist of his generation, and one of the most unusual. Indeed there is no one else that I can think of who places himself quite so firmly in the great tradition of early Baroque, yet with no sense of anachronism or pastiche.”
Ian Dejardin, Director, Dulwich Picture Gallery
"Williams may paint like a modern-day Counter-Reformation artist, but his subject matter is worlds away and unique to him, visually and intellectually gripping."
Brian Sewell, Art critic
"The quality of the painting seemed to me astounding"
Mark Bills, Curator of Paintings Prints & Drawings Museum of London (Opening speech, Russell-Cotes Museum)
“An artist who has such a comfortable and informed relationship with the art of the past...he is able to draw on a large number of sources to produce fresh and vibrant images drawn and explored with consummate skill....they emerge from observation and the intimacy of the artist with his subject. “
