This article profiles Frank Woodberry Applebee (1902-1988) and features Applebee's painting called "Monday." Applebee was born in Boston and attended the Massachusetts College of Art. Throughout his career, Applebee continued his learning, and in the 1940s took a correspondence course in drawing from the Ralph M. Pearson Design Workshop. He continued to teach until 1969 when, at his retirement, he was named Professor Emeritus. In 1949 Applebee won a $25 award for "Monday" at the exhibition of the Alabama Art League, held at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Applebee's legacy consists of two respectable achievements: (1) a highly regarded body of work of his own; and (2) the amazing acquisition of the core collection of a well-respected university art museum. His two contributions to the world are poetically connected in the work, "Monday."
