Terry Frost Art Prints

Sir Terry Frost was raised in a working-class family in Warwickshire, England. He served with the commandos during World War II, but was captured in 1940 and spent four years as a prisoner of war in Stalag 383. He began to draw as a result of meeting a number of artists in the camp, and upon his release he enrolled at the Camberwell School of Art in London in the late 1940s. He spent time in both London and Cornwall and became a leading member of the thriving art scene, which at that time included Moore, Hepworth, Wallis, Nicholson and American visitors Rothko and Pollock. Frost had his first one-man show in London in 1952. By this time he was committed to the processes of abstraction and color, and moved away from his original starting point of more muted line and form. He became a leading figure in the world of abstract painting, holding his first one-man show in New York in 1960. He was elected Royal Academician in 1992 and received a knighthood in 1998. He continues to work on projects throughout the world and still paints every working day in his studio near Penzance. He has recently been awarded a one-man show at the Royal Academy in Piccadilly. His work is represented in all the major collections of twentieth-century painting.
