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.

Welcome to the Archibald Knox Society Website

The Society is currently working to develop a network of partners on the Isle of Man to re-launch the Society and the Knox Trail. These partners include Culture Vannin, IOM Arts Council, Peel Cathedral Project, Knockaloe Trust and Douglas Borough Council. The Society is also keen to re-explore links with societies, galleries and institutions around the world, including the Rennie Mackintosh Society and links made during the 2011 Lecture Tour across the USA.

We would love to hear from anyone able to devote some time to the running of the Society – do get in touch, email
