FREDERICK AUSTIN (1902-1990)

Frederick George Austin, younger brother of the great printmaker Robert Sargent Austin (1895-1973), was born in Leicester in 1902. He attended the Leicester College of Art then the Royal College of Art (1924-27). At the RCA he studied under Randolph Schwabe, William Rothenstein and, most significantly, the printmaker and future president of the R.E., Malcolm Osborne. The ‘Print Revival’ was then reaching its peak in Britain, so Austin saw the RCA printmaking department in its heyday, having grown from a mere 5 or 6 students in the 1890s to between 60 and 70 students.

As his brother had done before him, Austin won the Prix de Rome in 1927 for his etching The Flight into Egypt (see an example in our stock archive). He was elected an associate member of the R.E. in 1930, and a fellow in 1952. Although he was a regular exhibitor, his professional life was taken up largely by teaching at London art schools, including Blackheath, Putney, Kingston, Croydon and Epsom.

The etchings in this group all date from early in his career. Many – The Feast in the House of Simon (1926), The Congregation (1927), A Peasant Family (1928) The Baptism (c.1930) – are religious subjects treated with great sensitivity. They depict, in one way or another, acts of faith and belie his own Catholicism. Despite the quality of his work, there is no study of Austin as an artist or a catalogue of his prints. It is high-time he was given the scholarly attention he deserves…

It has been five long years since our last exhibition with Tor Falcon. But, boy has it been worth the wait! The drawings in this exibition are a study of our moon – how to get to grips with finding it, looking at it, drawing it, understanding it … and so much more … Tor has published a beautifully written journal documenting the project to accompany the exhibition.
