Terry Frost was one of Britain’s great abstract painters. His career spanned seven decades, starting with his introduction to art in a prisoner of war camp, and stretching into the twenty-first century. He drew inspiration from a wide range of sources, but most especially from poetry and from the landscapes of Cornwall, Yorkshire, the Greek islands and America.
Resolutely abstract, his paintings collages and sculptures are known for their exuberance and strong colour. Joyful and celebratory, his work is also a sensitive and contemplative articulation of the way in which the artist experience the world. In this book Chris Stephens presents Frost’s art within a historical context and in relation to the work of his international contemporaries.
