Frank O. Salisbury
Painting, Visual Artist
1874 – 1962
Who was Frank O. Salisbury?
Francis Owen Salisbury was an English artist who specialised in portraits, large canvases of historical and ceremonial events, stained glass and book illustration. In his heyday he made a fortune on both sides of the Atlantic and was known as “Britain’s Painter Laureate”. His art was steadfastly conservative and he was a vitriolic critic of Modern Art – particularly of his contemporaries Picasso, Chagall and Mondrian. His father, Henry Salisbury, described himself as a “plumber, decorator and ironmonger”, yet his son Frank would become one of the greatest society artists of his generation.
