Biography Frank Wright Bourdillon
Frank Wright Bourdillon had a short painting career of about twelve
years, most of which were spent in the artist's colony of Newlyn.
Bourdillon was engrossed in the drama and saga of Elizabethan seafaring
and painted carefully orchestrated Elizabethan sets in the open air
using models dressed in period costume.
This enthusiasm for the
historical culminated in Bourdillon's best known work On Bideford Sands,
a reconstruction of the duel between Will Carey and Rose's Spanish
lover at the moment of intervention by Sir Richard Grenville.
