A painter and graphic artist, Brangwyn studied at South Kensington Art School and worked as a draughtsman for the British designer William Morris between 1882 and 1884. In 1895 Siegfried Bing commissioned him to paint a mural for the "Art Nouveau" boutique in Paris. Brangwyn's style reflects the rhythmic, decorative line favoured by Art Nouveau, while retaining the Symbolist influence of Edward Burne-Jones and the Pre-Raphaelites. His frieze for the ticket hall of the Canadian Grand Trunk Railway office in London, England, completed in 1908, can now be seen in the Ottawa Conference Centre.
