Frank Stone (1800-1859), Painter

Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist associated with 6 portraits
The son of a cotton-spinner, Frank Stone took up art in 1824 and was apparently self-taught. He settled in London in 1831. His early work involved producing drawings for Charles Heath's Books of Beauty (1833-47), but by 1833 he was exhibiting at the Old Watercolour Society. Stone's initial entries at the British Institution in 1835 were genre subjects, while his first contributions to the Royal Academy in 1837 were portraits.
