Nancy Cadogan

Nancy Cadogan (b.1979) is a British American artist, celebrated for her figurative paintings with their profound engagement with literature, time, and the still moments of life.

Cadogan’s works were described as “heaven on a canvas” by the Evening Standard, and has been penned as “the new Paula Rego”. She has had solo exhibitions internationally, including at Saatchi Gallery, London in 2019 and Keats-Shelley House, Rome in 2020. In 2022, she was invited as Artist in Residence at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Paris.

Her latest project, ‘The Lost Trees’, explores our relationship with trees, time, and the natural world.

In 2024, she was invited by the Torre delle Arti, Bellagio, to showcase a body of work inspired by Lake Como, titled ‘Stanza’. Director of the Ingram Collection, Jo Baring has described these works as “a poetic dialogue with the viewer, inviting us into a space of contemplation through the eloquence of her painterly prose.”
