sir frank brangwyn, official war artistSir Frank William Brangwyn RA RWS PRBA HRSA (1867 – 1956), Biography

Frank was a Welsh artist born in Bruges, Belgium whilst his father was fulfilling a commission to decorate the Basilica of the Holy Blood.

Frank Brangwyn received artistic training from his father, and later from the architect and artist William Morris. Aged 17, one of Frank’s paintings made it into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Brangwyn was inspired by the light and vibrant colours of the southern countries and travelled to Istanbul, Spain, Morocco, Egypt, Africa and Turkey.

In 1895, Siegfried Bing, a Parisian art dealer (known for starting the Art Nouveau movement), encouraged Frank to try mural paintings, stained-glass windows and carpet designs, which gave him a name in America. .
