About

Frost later worked as assistant to Barbara Hepworth in St Ives, Cornwall, where he spent much of his life. In this film, Frost’s grandson Luke Frost, himself a painter, shows us around Frost’s Porthmeor studio, on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and offers a personal insight into his grandfather’s life and work.

Sir Terry Frost’s artwork is featured in The Far and The Near at Tate St Ives
