He worked at the Admiralty making drawings in the Airship department during the First World War until 1919 when he re-entered the Slade and was shortly invited by Professor Tonks to join the teaching staff where he remained until he retired in 1957. On his retirement he turned his full attention to the Samuel Palmer School of Art, which had been operating at his home in Shoreham since 1924 when he first held summer classes in landscape painting for his Slade students. In the fifties the school expanded to take residential students, and even though ill-health caused him to restrict his activities in later years, many local part-time students were helped to achieve a better standard of painting and drawing through the classes held in the studio. The Slade School of Fine Art (informally The Slade) is a world-renowned art school in London, United Kingdom, and a department of University College London. It consistently ranks as the UKs premier Art and Design educational institution. Franklin White was first accepted as a student at Slade School of Fine Art University College London in 1915. In 1916 he left the Slade for war work in the Aircraft Department of the Admiralty where he was employed drawing parts of bombed enemy planes. He said later that it was at the Admiralty that he really learned to draw. In 1919 when the war was over he returned to The Slade to continue his studies. After two more terms he was invited by Professor Henry Tonks to join the teaching staff. He continued at the Slade School until he retired in 1957. Exhibited in various mixed exhibitions including the Redfern and Agnews Galleries and at the New English Art Club and other famous institutions. 1962 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother purchased a small oil painting Regina from the exhibition at the Maidstone Museum. Another purchase was made by Noel Coward. A very fine example of mid 20th. Century British School drawing by a very talented hand. TIS A DAZZALER - WHEN PROPERLY FRAMED !
