Born in Leamington Spa, England, in 1915, Sir Terry Frost is universally considered one of the most important British artists of the 20th century.

Using bold colours and simplified, geometric forms, through his prints and paintings, Terry Frost evoked moments and events that had produced profound reactions in him. Frost studied under Victor Pasmore at Camberwell School of Art in London, where he came into contact with the work of the St Ives artists Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Peter Lanyon and Roger Hilton, among others, which hugely influenced his abstract style. He experimented with collage and construction, etching , lino-cut , woodcut, drypoint etching and wholeheartedly embraced print as a discipline.

Sir Terry Frost was elected Royal Academician by London's Royal Academy of Arts in 1992 and in 1998 was awarded an OBE for his contribution to British art and art education. Sir Terry Frost died in 2003
