Hannah Frank

Hannah Frank

Hannah Frank was born in Glasgow in 1908.  Her black and white illustrations began with her work for the Glasgow University student magazine.  She went on to produce posters and leaflets for almost all the Glasgow Jewish institutions from the late 1920s until the 50s.

She studied at the University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art and her drawings and sculptures were exhibited regularly at the Royal Glasgow Institute and the Royal Academy.

The illustrations included in this exhibition were shown as part of 'Hannah Frank: A Glasgow Artist - Drawing and Sculptures 100th Birthday Exhibition' held in the University Chapel in September 2008.
