FRANK CHARLES MEDWORTH (British/Australian / 1892-1947)

Born in Southwark, London, Frank Medworth studied at Camberwell, where he was a close friend and associate of David Jones. As with Jones, his life was overshadowed by the First World War, in which he suffered a severe head injury. In the 1930s he published the books Animal Drawing, Perspective, and Figure Drawing. In 1938 Medworth left England to take up a teaching post in Sydney, Australia. His life came to a sad end in 1947 when, harried by parliamentary accusations that he was a communist, Frank Medworth slit his wrists in a Mexico City hotel, while attending a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Conference.
