Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Robert Clinton Frankenberg Papers are particularly outstanding for the detailed notes and information provided by the artist. He explains his techniques, the processes used by the printer and publisher, and significant and/or unusual facts in regard to specific illustrations. His work shows careful research and attention to detail; he is flexible in style, equally capable of rendering the humorous scenes in The Lucky Laceys, the formality of the coronation in Queen Victoria or the action and intensity of Florence Nightingale.
