Biography

One of six children of a London-born cabinet maker, Frederick Austin was an engraver and painter like his older brother Robert. Frederick trained at Leicester College of Art and then at the Royal College of Art between 1924-27 under the guidance of Malcolm Osborne, Randolph Schwabe and Sir William Rothenstein. He was awarded the Rome Scholarship in engraving in 1927, just as brother Robert had been five years earlier. Austin exhibited at the Royal Academy and also at his own Society, the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. He also exhibited abroad. And many of his printed works contained religious content with an influence of medieval art.
