Frank Patterson cycle artist
Pictured in this post is a fantastic image drawn by Frank Patterson , He was the most popular artist of his time and often his artwork could often be found in old cycling advertisements, Brooks catalogues and the popular CTC ( Cyclists Touring Club ) Gazette It is possible to purchase books and prints of his artwork even though he passed away in 1952. Frank was born in Portsmouth , England in 1871 and at that time the bicycle was developing as the most popular means of transport opening up the joys of touring to everyone including Patterson. His artwork captures the Golden age of cycling long before Lycra, Alloy and Carbon fiber frames were introduced.
