FRANK BRANGWYN (Welsh / 1867-1956)

Frank William Brangwyn was actually born in Belgium, in the city of Bruges, where his father was working as an architect; the family did not return to Britain until Frank was 10. Frank Brangwyn was apprenticed to William Morris for four years, but set his own path in art, having a painting accepted at the Royal Academy when he was just 17. He was an Official War Artist in WWI. Brangwyn could turn his hand to just about anything, from oil paintings to etchings to large-scale murals. It is probably his smaller-scale graphic works such as etchings and wood-engravings that seem most successful to us today. There is a dedicated Brangwyn museum in Bruges, the city of his birth, which gave him honorary citizenship in 1936.
