Thomas Kerr Fairless (1825 – 14 July 1853) was an English landscape-painter.


Life

Fairless was born at Hexham, Northumberland, one of the sons of the antiquary Joseph Fairless. He was a student of the vignette engravings of Thomas Bewick, and for some time worked under Bewick's pupil Isaac Nicholson, a wood-engraver at Newcastle.[1]

Nicholson went to London and became a landscape-painting, typically of summer scenes in English woods and pastures of England, and sea-views and shipping. From 1848 to 1851 he was an exhibitor at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, and the Suffolk Street Gallery. He was also a teacher of drawing and painting.[1]

In August 1851 Nicholson returned in bad health to Hexham, where he died on 14 July 1853, in his twenty-eighth year.[1]
