Product description

This beautifully produced volume presents the life and work of British painter Terry Frost. It is a rich and diverse mixture of his own thoughts and writings about art and life, the history of his five decades of productive work as a painter, and reflections on the particular qualities of his art.The texts are woven together in a personal narrative by David Lewis, friend of the artist for many years and a leading authority on the St Ives artists.Terry Frost captures something of the full vigor of the artist's personality and his trenchant views on art and abstraction, and its scrapbook character both illustrates the development of his career and documents the essentials of being a painter.
