The Banker - Painting At The Banbury Museum, Oxfordshire.

    Newer Older

    Oil painting on canvas by Banbury artist Cyril J.Frost, 1956.

    If you compare this portrait with the one of Mr Plowright by the same artist you may notice that the canvas is more visable, the paint hasn'r been built up as much. If up can put a name to the banker and have memories of him, let the museum know.
