Sir Terry Frost RA

Terry Frost RA is one of Britain’s most successful and highly acclaimed artists of the twentieth century. This was recognised in the 1998 New Year Honours List, when Terry was granted a knighthood.


Born in 1915, Terry discovered his artistic talent during the four years he spent as a prisoner of war during the Second World War. On his return to England he studied at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, enjoying the flourishing artistic scenes of London and St. Ives. By the late 1950’s he had become established as a leading abstract painter, exhibiting regularly in London and throughout the world.


Printmaking has always played a key role in Terry’s work. For him painting and printing are inseparable, with one medium creating ideas for the other. In 1974 Terry moved permanently to Cornwall, where his love of the region has provided a rich source of inspiration for much of his work.
