Frederick William Jackson was born in Middleton, Greater Manchester in 1859. 59 years later he was buried in Middleton. In the intervening years he based himself in a number of locations.
Jackson was interested in art from an early age, after leaving school he studied at Oldham School of Art where he was introduced to the Manchester School, a group of artists that were influenced by the French artist’s colony at Barbizon.
In 1884 Jackson moved to Paris, where he exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1884.
When Jackson returned to England, after a short spell in Italy, he settled down not far from the North Yorkshire village of Staithes. He joined a group of artist known as the Staithes Group, who amongst their ranks were Gilbert Foster (who formed the group), Dame Laura Knight and Frank Henry Mason.
