Frank Thomas Carter (1853-1934)

Frank Thomas Carter (also Francis) was a painter, usually of landscapes in oil and was born at Warkworth, Northumberland. The son of a station master, he moved to Newcastle to work as a newsagent before joining his father as lessee of the Pineapple Grill in the city's Nun Street. The family later took over the Nags Head which became widely known as 'Carters'. Carter experimented with painting and found he was quite capable and increasingly devoted more time to his new hobby. He first began exhibiting at the Bewick Club and in 1898 he sent his first work to the Royal Academy. He became a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Hibernian Academy, Royal Cambridge Academy and the Suffolk Street Gallery. It is said that Carter spent six days of the week as an innkeeper and Sundays as a painter. Carter is represented at many galleries including the Laing, Shipley and South Shields.
