Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956)
Frank Brangwyn was born in Bruges, Belgium in 1867.
Training at the Royal College of Art, Brangwyn later went on to be an apprentice of William Morris in 1882, who influenced Brangwyn to diversify his art.
Although he became established as an accomplished etcher and lithographer, Brangwyn also produced designs for furniiture, jewellery and textiles, and also made some large scale stained glass panels for Tiffany’s.
Brangwyn went on to become the first ever artist to be honoured with a retrospective at the Royal Academy during his lifetime in 1952.
