    In Loving Memory Of Frank H. Mason Jr.

    Frank Herbert Mason
    Friend, Teacher, & Timeless American Painter.
    Rest In Peace Frank.
    The Painter Who Never Rested Finally Sleeps Eternal.

    Mason attended the Music and Arts High School in New York until he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Art Students League of New York with Frank DuMond.
    Mason studied with Dumond until DuMond's death in 1951, when he himself began teaching at the Art Students League.

    Mason's painting, the Resurrection of Christ, can be seen in Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. In 1962 Mason received a commission to paint eight large paintings of the Life of St. Anthony of Padua, which were permanently installed in the 11th Century Church of San Giovanni de Malta, in Venice, where his paintings hang alongside a painting by Giovanni Bellini.
    Consequently, the Order of Malta conferred upon him the Cross of Merit, Prima Classe.
    He became the first painter to receive the honor since Caravaggio.

    In response to the overcleaning of the Sistine Chapel, Mason, along with James Beck, helped form the organization, ArtWatch International.

    The many and talented young emerging painters Frank Mason had been teaching ever since 1951 recently celebrated their teacher-mentor's 85th birthday in New York, organizing a gathering in honour and thankfulness for over 50 years of generous dedication to his students.

    Mason will be the subject of an upcoming, full length documentary film produced by Maestro films.

    Thanks Bunny.
    Frank was truly a master painter. He actually used to grind his own pigments and hand make/formulate his oil colors.
