Austrian by birth, Frank worked in Graz, Berlin, London and Karlsruhe. J&G give an address in Munich for him.
By 1901 he was boarding at Tregenna Place in St Ives, but it is not known how long he remained. He exhibited one painting at the Glasgow Institute and one at the International Society between 1904-06, but these may have been from his Munich address.
