Francis Ernest Jackson (1872-1945)

He was instrumental in the development of lithography among artists in Great Britain.  He helped launch The Imprint and Neolith, both publications devoted to improving standards in printing art works.  In 1910 he founded the Senefelder Club whose members included Joseph Pennell and Matisse.  In 1922 he was instrumental in reviving the interest in tempera with many artists.

Jackson was born August 15, 1872, in Yorkshire.  His education began at Yorkshire College.  He then studied "trade lithography" at Bolt Court.  He was encouraged to go to Paris where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and Académe Julian. Some of his instructors were Jean Paul Laurens and William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

He received honorable mention in 1909 and a silver medal in 1929 at the Paris Salon.  A monument in St. James's Church in Picadilly honors him and his achievements.

He died March 11, 1945, after being struck by a motorcycle near the Magdalen Bridge, Oxford.

Art Nouveau was an early influence.  Portraiture was the bulk of the lithographic work.  He worked in various media; life drawings, lithography, paintings in watercolor, oil, tempera, distemper and fresco.

His teaching career for which he is well remembered began at the London Arts and Crafts school in 1902 until 1921.  He then assumed a position at the Byam Shaw Art School in 1926 until World War II closed the school.

F. E. Jackson was involved with many projects such as with the London County Council to provide schools with aesthetic art work and the London Electric Railway (the Underground) with posters to encourage travel.  Another commission for the Ministry of Information was in support of the war effort.

During the year 2000 the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford University mounted a retrospective exhibition with an accompanying catalog titled F. Ernest Jackson and His School.
