Frank Brangwyn was a muralist, oil painter, watercolourist, etcher, lithographe, and designer of interiors, furniture, carpets, ceramics and stained glass. At the turn of the twentieth century Brangwyn's work was revered by the European cognoscenti. He worked for art dealer Samuel Bing and American glassmaker Louis Comfort Tiffany and produced murals for four North American public buildings.
