Artist.

Born at Sheffield, England on 14 February 1878, he attended the Sheffield Technical School of Art, Royal College of Art in London, and Académie Royale des Beaux Arts at Antwerp. He emigrated to Portland, Oregon to teach art but soon moved to Winnipeg where, in 1913, he was appointed director of the Art Department at Kelvin Technical High School. Fanshaw was noted as a teacher and as an exhibiting artist. He was a member of the Winnipeg School of Art’s Art Committee from 1926 to 1938. One of his favourite media was the colour block print. He died at St. James on 11 August 1940 and was buried in the St. James Anglican Cemetery.
