Frank Lewis EMANUEL

Frank Lewis EMANUEL

The artist stayed with his parents at Albany House, St Ives in 1892. He studied at University College, the Slade School and Julians Academy in Paris, and married Florence Crawford-Evans. They lived in London but travelled widely, and Frank was a special artist with the Manchester Guardian.  He also wrote for the Architectural Review, being particularly interested in interiors and architecture in general, and was a Chief Examiner for the Royal Drawing Society.

He was the author of an article in The Studio: 'Concarneau, Brittany as a Sketching Ground'.

His painting A Kensington Interior was bought for the nation by the Chantrey Bequest in 1912.  Most of his paintings were burned in a fire at his home in later life.
