Terry Frost

Sir Terry Frost RA (1915 –  2003) was an English abstract artist, who worked in Newlyn, Cornwall. Frost was renowned for his use of the Cornish light, colour and shape to start a new art movement in England. Influenced by the light and atmosphere within Cornwall, Frost drew on his internal response to Cornish culture such as the sea, fishing boats and floating buoys, transforming them into art. Printmaking was integral to Frost's practice, he considered painting and printmaking inseparable with each medium inspiring the other.

Orange and Blue Space

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.
