Sir Terry Frost RA (1915 – 2003) was an English abstract artist, who worked in Newlyn, Cornwall
Frost’s work reflects his gratitude and joie de vivre at having survived wartime incarceration; it is full of colour, light and the pleasure of existence. Frost took his inspiration from nature; the sun, moon, water, boats and the female form are recurring motifs abstracted into sensuous circles and curves. These shapes are often coloured in dramatic blues, reds, oranges, yellows and blacks.
Why are they rare?
Sir Terry Frost has become one of the most highly regarded British artists of our time. Today, the artist’s works are in the collections of the Tate Gallery in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh. As a result, his work is very popular and highly sought-after.
