Artists and Engravers: Made by ‘Frank Brangwyn’ after an anonymous artist. Sir Frank William Brangwyn (1867-1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, born in Bruges (Belgium). In 1874 the family moved back to the United Kingdom. Although Brangwyn received some training from his father, and later in the workshops of William Morris (where he worked 1882-1884), he was mostly autodidact with little formal training. He produced pieces in painting, water colour, but is mostly remembered as a virtuoso etcher and book illustrator.
