Frank Dicksee

(1853-1928), Painter and President of the Royal Academy

Sir Francis Bernard ('Frank') Dicksee

Sitter in 18 portraits
Artist associated with 36 portraits
Dicksee enjoyed early success with his painting, Harmony' exhibited at the Academy in 1877 and, in the following decades, exploited the popular taste both for quasi-historical subjects painted in the later Pre-Raphaelite style and the vogue for modern melodramas. He was elected an Associate of the RA in 1881 and full Academician in 1891.
