Sir Frank Brangwyn
Painter and printmaker, Brangwyn was originally born in Bruges and is known for his vast murals, often depicting brightly colored figures. Becoming a Royal Academician in 1919, Brangwyn was later knighted in 1941. Mastering an unusual etching form in which he used large zinc plates, many examples of these and his painted work can be found in state buildings both in the UK (Skinner's Hall, The Royal Exchange, London; The Guild Hall, Swansea,) and the USA (Missouri State Capital; The Court House, Cleveland; The Rockefeller Center, New York). There are also two museums, one in Bruges and the other in Orange, Southern France, devoted to his work.
