Save Event: Terry Frost: A Book of Ideas

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


A rare opportunity to view a selection of work from the artist’s large format work/sketch book – never previously exhibited.


The richly illustrated volume contained over 50 paintings and collages. A number of these images were developed into known paintings or worked into recognisable print media editions, but some have remained as fascinating prototypes/imaginings of what might have been. Several of the artist's favourite subjects are explored here, for example 'Suspended Forms', 'Sun and Moon' theme, the 'Lorca' series, etc. The book covers the period 1970s up to 1981.

Following Terry Frost’s death in 2003, the studio contents were gradually relocated to a specially converted art store. Whilst archiving the artist's collection some years later, this large format, cloth-bound sketchbook was discovered amongst the artist's retained paintings and effects.
