Famous for his railway poster designs as a commercial artist, Frank Henry Mason championed the northern coasts of Britain in his fine art paintings, particularly those of Yorkshire.

In this talk at the Treasure House in Beverley, Edward Yardley, a leading expert and author on Mason, will tell the story of the artist’s life in art. He will explain how he became interested in the self-taught marine painter and will highlight the artistic influences on Mason and the sketching tours he undertook. As well as railway posters, Mason’s successful commercial artwork included illustrations for society magazines, marine books and periodicals, and even designs for cigarette and playing cards.

The talk accompanies the current exhibition, ‘ASHORE AND AFLOAT- THE ART OF FRANK HENRY MASON 1875-1965’ at Beverley Art Gallery in the Treasure House.
