Synopsis

Terry Frost Prints A Catalogue Raisonne by Dominic Kemp, Charles Booth-Clibborn, Brad Faine, Stanley Jones

Painter, printmaker and teacher Sir Terry Frost RA (1915-2003) was a key figure in the development of British 20th-century abstract art. He was also a prolific printmaker, and this important publication brings together, for the first time, a complete catalogue of the artist's prints. The result is a colourful visual history of Frost's remarkable printmaking career. Discovering a natural ability to capture likenesses, Frost began to explore his artistic talents when he was a prisoner of war. During the late 1940s, he honed and developed his artistic skills as a student at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts. Dividing his time between the thriving art scenes of London and St Ives during the 1950s, Frost embraced abstraction and soon established himself as a leading British artist - a reputation which is still felt today. Prints were an essential element of Frost's oeuvre - he believed that painting and printmaking were inseparable and that each medium informed the other. The importance of printmaking within his evolution as an abstract artist is borne out by the sumptuous colour images reproduced here. Combining scholarship with arresting imagery, Terry Frost Prints offers both reference value and visual delight and as such is an essential purchase for all those interested in this major British artist.

Reviews

'Terry Frost is one of those artists whose work brings a smile to one's face. This book confirms Frost's achievement as a major printmaker. His images explode off the page and the viewer is assailed by colour at every turn.'
RA Magazine

'This is an attractive book that does Frost proud as a printmaker.'
Print Quarterly
