Biographical history

Hannah Frank was born in Glasgow in 1908 and developed her trademark black and white drawings from the age of 17. She attended the University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art, and between 1927 and 1932 produced many drawings for the Glasgow University Magazine (GUM) using the pen name 'Al Aaraaf'.<br /> <br /> During the 1950s Hannah took up sculpture, studying with Benno Schotz and she continued to produce sculpture until her early 90s. Her drawings and sculptures were exhibited in the Royal Glasgow Institute, the Royal Academy and the Royal Scottish Academy. In recognition of her work, she was posthumously awarded the Glasgow City Council's Lord Provost's award for Art and an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Glasgow. <br /> <br />
