Artwork by a man who taught renowned artist David Hockney at Bradford College is up for sale by a famous auction house.
A Bonhams sale in Chester in May will include a full retrospective of Frank Johnson’s work, from early nudes of the 1950s to paintings of interiors filled with antique furniture, and life-size portraits.
Mr Johnson was an art teacher at Bradford College between 1952 and 1980. As well as Hockney, he taught names such as David Oxtoby, John Loker, Norman Stevens, Doug Binder and Dudley Edwards.
A Bonhams spokesman said: “Frank Johnson was a teacher of art first and foremost. He appears to have been a highly-skilled artist but extremely modest about his own considerable talent.
