Figurative / Realism



Metal (other)






His first commercial success was in creating figurative gold mini sculptures for showing at Lacloche in Cannes c. 1957. After moving to Paris, Frank decided to visit England, where he became cellar manager of the famous Mayfair wine firm of Block Grey and Block, later becoming the Director of their Highland Malt Distillery. All the while he spent evenings creating and casting his own smaller sculptures finding time to be commended three times by De Beers for his precious metal designs.

It is an enigma to himself how he found time to win the British Light Welterweight wrestling titles and Gold Medal in the 1966 World Games. As a corollary to those achievements, the president of the Olympic Committee for Wrestling owns one of his unique bronze wrestlers. He quickly was offered exhibitions in Paris, the U.S. and Israel, the inaugural show at the State Arts and Crafts Centre MASKIT.

His last exhibitions were at the Galerie Silverpoint, Paris and at Avignon, where it all began. He reflects that in the last twenty years he has been fortunate to be able to count on private collectors of his work, which explains why so little of his work reaches the market.
