Andrew Nicholl was born in Belfast and worked as an apprentice to a printer, but showed an interest in painting and drawing from early on. After spending some time in London he returned to Ireland to exhibit at the RHA, and was elected a full member of the Academy in 1860. He moved between Belfast, Dublin and London and for a time taught painting and drawing at the Colombo Academy in Ceylon.
