Sir Frank Brangwyn

Categories: Art

Countries: Belgium, Wales

Artist. Born Bruges, Belgium where his father was working as an architect/artist but his Anglo-Welsh family moved back to London in 1874. Largely self-taught he was skilled in various mediums and crafts. Employed by William Morris for a time. Murals by Brangwyn are still in place at the Royal Exchange and the Great Hall of the Skinners Company. For some reason some others which used to be here have ended up in Canada. Died at home in Sussex.

The drawing of Brangwyn is from the Maas Gallery and is by his friend Phil May.
