Glasgow artist's works are museum pieces

July 1, 2010

Works by the late Glasgow Jewish artist, Hannah Frank, have been added to the collection of Glasgow Museums.

The museums have acquired two black-and-white drawings and a set of six mounted woodcuts, which will go an temporary display at the end of August.

Fiona Frank, the artist's niece, was "really pleased that Hannah's home city art gallery has chosen to honour her in this way.

"My aunt, who died in December 2008 aged 100, would have been delighted."

Ms Frank hopes other public galleries in Scotland will acquire Hannah Frank works and there are plans to create a fund to support researchers wishing to study the artist's extensive archive, housed at the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre in Glasgow.

Last year, she was posthumously awarded Glasgow City Council's Lord Provost's Award for Art and Glasgow University's first posthumous honorary doctorate.
