Frank Armington MSA
Frank Armington studied art in Toronto, under J. W. L. Forster, and in Paris, first at the Academie Julian, under Benjamin Constant and Chaumiere, under Lucien Simon. Frank Armington first went to Paris in 1899, but returned to Canada with his wife, Caroline (1875-1939) to teach art in Winnipeg from 1901 through 1905. During this period, Robert Fulton Logan was among his students.
Returning to Paris in 1906, The Armington's established themselves as fine landscape and figure artists in both etching and painting. They were both full members of the Societe Nationale de la Gravure Originale en Noir, the Societe des Gravures Francais and the American Federation of Arts. Their original etchings and paintings were frequently included in major French and American exhibitions.
