Frank Joseph Archer, ARCA, ARE, RE, ARWS, RWS

(1912 - 95)

A painter and etcher, Frank was born in Walthamstow, East London, and brought up there during the First World War. Later the family moved to Eastbourne, where he attended Eastbourne School of Art from 1928 - 32, Brighton School of Art, and then the RCA, where he won the coveted Rome Scholarship in 1938.

His studies in Italy were rudely cut short by the outbreak of war, and he moved into teaching, eventually joining the staff of Kingston College of Art under another distinguished painter-etcher, Wilfred Fairclough. He took over from Fairclough.

He joined the Royal Society of Painters-Etchers in 1940, and became first an Associate of the Royal Watercolour Society in 1972 and later a Fellow.

His landscapes are full of drama, light, and colour, and many exhibit his great love of Italy. He was however passionately interested in music, being a lapsed violinist, and a friend of Yehudi Menuhin, as well as knowing many other great musicians. Many feature in his art.
