I will check if it is one of my uncles as we have his catalogue.I presume there is only one Arthur Hickman. He was from Rotherham U.K.and is locally quite famous for impressions of the local area.

He died in 1987 but we are in posession of alot of his work.

I just bought a watercolor signed Arthur Hickman that is dated 1966. It is obviously from Europe due to the street signs to the right of the painting.

Arthur Hickman was my great uncle and a local artist in the Rotherham area. I believe that he was quite a prolific painter and my mother has some of his water colours. He worked in Rotherham in the drawing office at Gilchrest & Chrimes. I have it on good authority that when the last trams were removed from the streets Arthur was called to the tram sheds to sketch the trams and that this is held in the Rotherham archives. Arthur died in 1987.

I also knew Arthur Hickman. He and his family were very good friends of my mothers. We lived across the road from him when they lived at Eastdene Rotherham. I also have quite a few of his paintings.

I have an original watercolour of the Clifton Park bandstand, painted in 1958 by Arthur Hickman. I would be interested to see prints or photos of any of his other works. I think they used to be on display in the Rotherham library but can't find them now.

I lived next to Arthur Hickman for many years, he gave me a water color of 'A Backyard Wentworth' dated and signed in 1982.  It's still in the original frame that he made himself.  He was a lovely neighbour

Arthur Hickman was indeed from England.Rotherham in South Yorkshire and he died there in 1987.Arthur was a fine painter especially of local features but also travelled far and wide on his bicycle. He was a draughtsman by trade and he painted many buildings and townscapes with a distinctive technical style. Much of his work has been displayed locally and can be purchased from Rotherham library. I also am in posession of his catalogue which dates back to his earlies works.

RE: ARTHUR HICKMAN, i have a balerina painting by a hickman, which i bought from him in the 80's.

I used to deliver meat to him when he lived in a flat near clifton Bank, rotherham. he had a massive collection of his painting and i wish i had bought more.

He was quite reclusive in the 80's and as i was on a govt training scheme, it was over a weeks wages. i would love to buy more of his art, or contribute to a "showing".  craig nelson

I was privileged to be asked to pose for the Rotherham Art Society, then particularly interested in "face bones", late summer/fall 1955, and was given the pastel portrait completed by Arthur Hickman. At the time, I was told that he was expected to be made an R.A.
