Peter Collis, the twentieth century master of still life and landscape painting, was born in England, absorbed drawing and fine art painting at the Epsom College of Art in London from 1947 to 1952, and moved to Ireland in 1969. His French Post-Impressionist style derives from Cezanne, as well as Gaugin and Vlaminck, albeit in an Irish setting.
Collis painted many subjects but those to which he returned constantly were landscapes and still life. He was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1990 before becoming a full member in 1993. He was part of the annual selection committee for 10 years where he also held the position of treasurer. Collis has had many solo and group shows in Ireland and abroad. He has also won several awards including Oireachtas, Maurice MacGonigal Landscape Prize and the James Adam Salesroom Award, RHA.
