Who Was Frank Sherwin?
Frank Sherwin (1896-1986) was born in Derby and studied at the Derby School of Art and then in Chelsea, London at the Heatherleys School of Fine Art.
He specialised in watercolours, but is remembered for the railway posters which promoted travel to holiday destinations around Britain and were very much part of the railways in the days of steam. He did posters for GWR, LMS, LNER & British Rail.
Frank will always be known for his watercolour paintings of landscapes. The collection of pictures from the family archive is mostly painted in gouache on board and reflect the same interest in landscape and the British countryside. The simplicity of composition and limited colour palette give the painting a timeless feel.
Within The Frank Sherwin Art Collection
This new art collection contains a series of classic watercolour art prints featuring vibrant colours and sweeping landscapes. Each art print features a timeless historic scene, illuminated with beautiful sweeping earthy colours and detailed illustrations.
Frank's family, who care for his original artwork, stated:
"We are really happy with the beautiful prints that Tall Boy have produced of Frank's work, the colour reproduction and the quality of the paper is outstanding. It is lovely to see them published so that people can enjoy and appreciate them again after all these years."
