Sir Terry Frost (1915 - 2003)
Sir Terry Frost was born in Leamington Spa in 1915 and began painting as a prisoner during the Second World War. Moving to St Ives in 1946 he began attending the local school of painting and gained an ex serviceman's grant to study for three years at Camberwell School in London. St Ives was fast becoming the centre for modern art in Britain and Frost soon became a well respected member of St Ives art circles which included Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Peter Lanyon. Terry Frost went on to teach at the Bath Academy, was Gregory Fellow at the University of Leeds and became Professor of painting at Reading University. He was elected to the RA in 1992 and was Knighted in 1998. Today Terry Frost's work is regarded as some of the most important to have emerged from the St Ives School, graces important collections in galleries across the world and is widely collected.
