  • Existence: 1906 - 1971

Frederick Storrier Jackson was born on April 26, 1906 in Summit, New Jersey. He studied at the Arts Students League in New York City. He was the younger brother of novelist Charles R. Jackson. Both Charles and Frederick suffered from uberculosis and spent several years in sanatoriums in Europe. During the years 1929-1931, they were in Davis, Switzerland. Apparently cured, Frederick Jackson returned to the US later than Charles and settled in Malaga, New Jersey where he became and antique dealer and rug maker. He died there on June 18, 1971.

Frederick was a handsome young man and modelled for Man Ray and other photographers. His own art work seems to have been limited to the rugs he braided. He never married, but his letters indicate that he had love affairs with several members of both sexes.
