Artist: Leach, Frederick Wrigley

Description: A lane near Cornaa, Maughold, painted in watercolours by Frederick Leach.

Frederick Wrigley Leach was born in Manchester, 1877. When Leach was ten years old, his family relocated to the Isle of Man, where they settled on the South Quay in Douglas. Leach’s father, Miles, was also an artist. It is believed that both father and son studied at the Douglas School of Art, where they would have come into contact with renowned Manx artist, Archibald Knox. Leach worked as a clerk in Douglas for the Wigan Coal and Iron Company and painted, mostly in watercolour, in his spare time. Later on, the artist became a founder member of the Manx Art Society.
