Anthony Rossiter lived in Somerset for 55 years, first coming to the area to teach at Millfield School in Somerset. He then became a lecturer at the West of England College of Art in Bristol and exhibited regularly at the Royal West of England Academy. Landscape painting was his main passion, particularly in the Mendip Hills, although he also painted portraits and everyday objects. A mystical man, he said that the work and writings of Vincent van Gogh had guided him more than any other artist.
