Jackson was born in Middleton in 1859, one of three brothers born to a photographer and art dealer father. Jackson showed an interest in art from an early age, but had relatively little formal training. After leaving school he attended evening classes at Oldham School of Art where William Stott was a fellow student and then life-drawing classes at Manchester Academy of Fine Art. In 1880 Jackson’s first painting was accepted by the Royal Academy.
