Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A famous architectural etcher, William Monk was especially noted for his etching, The Royal Jubilee Celebrations at St. Paul's Cathedral, published in 1897.  The event portrayed is Queen Victoria's sixtieth anniversary on the throne.  "She appears in the carriage under the Parasol in front of the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral.  Yet this is much more than an on the spot study of the occasion: the detailed portrayal of the cathedral and its surrounding buildings makes it a classic work of architectural art."

William Monk first studied art at Albion House in his birthplace, Chester, England, and then completed his education at the Royal Academy in Antwerp.

During his career, he created about one-hundred original etchings, most of them views of London Eton, Winchester and Durham.

He was elected a full member of the Royal Engravers in 1899.  His work is in the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and the War Museum, London.
