After the end of World War Two Nelson Thompson studied for 3 years at Chelsea School of Art on a NZ Govt. Bursary and a further year at London University, to complete his Teaching Degree. As a student, he travelled to Italy and delighted in drawing many of the architectural subjects. His pen and ink studies were done on site, with a freedom revealing his love and confidence in his drawing skills.

On returning to New Zealand, in order to support a family, Thompson taught at Secondary level and did his own work in holiday time. He continued to draw using pen and Ink and watercolour washes, within the confines of his ‘classical’ art school background. He was also greatly influenced by the Neo-Romantic revival after the war. John Piper, Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, and Henry Moore strongly influenced his work at this time. Some oil paintings of landscapes were done in the late '50s and early '60s.
