A most appealing still life; the wonderful array of colours in the fruit set off by the yellow kettle.
Frederick Cuming NEAC, RA, DLitt Hon, RBA trained at Sidcup School of Art and then at the Royal College of Art, before being awarded the Abbey Travel Scholarship to visit Italy. He was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Academy in 1964 and a full member ten years later. Fred has exhibited widely and won many awards. His work features in many public and private collections including Monte Carlo Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, Department of the Environment, Guinness Collection, Lloyds of London, WHSmith, London Weekend Television, Cheltenham and Gloucester and the London Tourist Board.
Fred has devoted his life to xpressing the fleeting impressions of his surroundings, often painting the South Coast of England around Hastings and Rye where he lives. He also continues to paint regularly in Italy. Fred attributes his love of landscape to his first experiences of it when an evacuee in the Blitz: its beauty and drama was such a stark contrast to urban London.
Examples of his work can be seen on the ArtUK website.
