Frank Herbert Mason

A long-time teacher from 1951 at the Art Students League in New York City, Frank Mason had a forty-four year career in the classroom.  In 1996, an exhibition of his work as well as that of many of his students was organized by many of his students and held at the G.C. Lucas Gallery in Indianapolis.

As an artist, he emphasized respect for the Old Masters such as Michelangelo, Rubens, Vermeer and Velasquez. He was dedicated to the effective use of light and the appearance of it moving throughout the painting.

He has had numerous church painting commissions including San Giovanni di Malta in Venice and St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City.
