Artist Biography

His architectural views included locations such as London, New York, Eton, Winchester and Durham. Monk was elected an Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 1894 and a full member in 1899. He was a prolific exhibitor showing at the Abbey Gallery, Baillie Gallery, Beaux Arts Gallery, Fine Art Society, Grosvenor Gallery, Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, International Society of Sculptors, Painters & Gravers, Walker Art Gallery, Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, Royal Academy of Arts, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and Walker's Gallery.

He is best remembered for his annual 'Calendarium Londinense' (The London Almanack) which contained a 12-month calendar with one of Monk's engravings of the capital. It was published annually from 1903 until 2004. Monk left London in 1933 and returned to his native Chester where he died 4 years later. In 2013 the 150th anniversary of the artist's birth was marked at the city's Grosvenor Museum with the exhibition 'A Vision of England: Etchings by William Monk'.
