The details (from wikipedia)


Francis Lenn Taylor (December 28, 1897 – November 20, 1968) was an American art dealer and father of actress Elizabeth Taylor.

Life and career

He was born in Springfield, Illinois, the son of Elizabeth Mary (née Rosemond; 1869–1937) and Francis Marion Taylor (1860–1946). The family later moved to Arkansas City, Kansas.

Francis began dealing in art in New York City for a wealthy in-law, Howard Young.

Taylor married stage actress Sara Sothern (whose real name was Sara Viola Warmbrodt and who was also from Arkansas City) in 1926 in New York.

They were the parents of Howard Taylor (born 1929) and of Elizabeth Taylor (1932–2011).

Within a few years of his marriage, Taylor was transferred to Young's art gallery in London, England, where he and Sara lived for several years, and where their children were born. In April 1939, five months before the outbreak of World War II in Europe, they returned to the United States.

Taylor later ran an art gallery at The Beverly Hills Hotel in California.

He died at age 70 in Los Angeles, California. He is interred beside his widow in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, Westwood, Los Angeles.
