FREDERICK WILLIAM JACKSON
Born at Middleton Junction, Oldham, Jackson was known as a landscape and marine painter. He studied at the Oldham School of Art and the Manchester Academy, and although called a ‘Manchester’ painter (where he often exhibited), he worked principally in Hinderwell, Yorkshire. He also studied under J. Lefebvre and Boulanger in Paris, and travelled in Italy and Morocco.
Jackson exhibited from 1880 at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street and elsewhere, titles at the Royal Academy including mainly landscapes, and Gossip, The Haven under the Hill, and Sunny Days, amongst others. His watercolour sketches are very atmospheric with a great sense of breadth and light, as can be seen in his Early Morning, Florence, 1910. Jackson also did decorative sketches for tiles. His works are in Bradford Art Gallery and Manchester City Art Gallery.
