Francis Owen ('Frank') Salisbury

Sitter in 38 portraits

Born in Hertfordshire, Salisbury won a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools at the age of eighteen. He won many prizes during five years at the RA Schools and travelled to Italy in 1896 after being awarded the Landseer scholarship. Salisbury quickly acquired a considerable reputation. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1899 to 1943 and his career as a portrait painter also flourished in the United States. His sitters include five presidents of the United States, five British prime ministers and many members of the British royal family, including the official coronation portraits of King George VI.
