9781848220355: Terry Frost Prints: A Catalogue Raisonné

Painter, printmaker and teacher Sir Terry Frost RA (1915-2003) was a key figure in the development of British twentieth-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 as 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 sound 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 key British artist.

About the Author:

Dominic Kemp studied drama and went on to become an actor on stage, television and film. This book marks a change of direction. He set up his own Modern British Prints business in 2007 and was guest curator for the 50th anniversary exhibition at the Curwen Gallery in 2008. John Hoyland is one of Britain's leading abstract painters. He became a Senior Royal Academician in 1991. Stanley Jones MBE is a printmaker and Director of the Curwen Press. He was a lecturer in lithography at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, from 1958 until his retirement in 1998. Brad Faine studied painting and printmaking at Leicester College of Art and at Goldsmiths College. He set up his own screenprinting company, The Coriander Studio, in 1973. Charles Booth-Clibborn founded the Paragon Press in 1986 and has since published over ninety projects with artists such as Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Grayson Perry and Marc Quinn.

Review:

'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
