Archibald Knox was born in the Isle of Man of Scottish parenthood. His designs were synonymous with British Art Nouveau and he is regarded as being a prominent influence in the Arts and Crafts movement. His Celtic designs and calligraphy are world famous and iconic in the Isle of Man. Today both his art work for Liberty & Co and his watercolours are highly sought after.

In Memoriam

Liam O'Neill
Founder of The Archibald Knox Society
It is with great sadness and deep regret that we announce the passing of Liam O'Neill. He had been battling cancer for some time. Liam was Founder of the Archibald Knox Society and played a huge part in raising Knox's profile on the Isle of Man and internationally. For those that knew him he was also a man of great knowledge, charisma, energy and integrity all of which he brought to the Society. He will be hugely missed and impossible to replace but the Directors of the Society intend to carry on Liam's amazing work and will be in touch with members in due course.
