1914 ~ 1989
For many, Francis Coudrill will be fondly remembered for his quirky television wild ‘wooly’ west characters, including Hank The Cowboy, his
'sidekick' - horse Silver King, and the notorious bandit Mexican Pete.
Although the Hank phenomena continued to haunt and distort the considerable artistic contribution of Coudrill, his landscapes and portrait drawings are finally being recognised on equal footing as the other great Penwith artists of the 1960's.

My father considered himself to be primarily a Fine Artist, and it was within the parameters of this discipline that he made such a seminal contribution to the
graphic art of the Twentieth Century, an opinion volunteered by Sir Christopher Frayling at the Royal College of Art in 1998.
He was commissioned in the 'forties to design the Inn Signs for the Ind Coope brewery chain and the work was
exhibited at the Royal College as an example of excellence, an excellence he brought to the perfectly composed sets and characters in his famous Television Series.
