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.
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.
