          The triptych format of this large painting relates it to religious iconography, with which the configuration of three related panels is traditionally associated. The composition of each panel, in which the central form isolated within the surrounding space, reinforces this connection. It is thought an earlier version of the painting exists beneath the current work.

          Artist details

          Born in Warwickshire in 1915, Frost started painting while being held as a prisoner of war in Germany in 1943, an experience he later described as an ‘awakening’. He moved to St Ives in the 1950s, where he became an influential member among the modernist artists based there. By the late 50s he has established a reputation as one of Britain’s leading British abstract artists. His paintings are shaped by a rare perception of landscape, including a formative period in Yorkshire, where his work took on strong monochromatic contrasts. His later works deployed a strong use of colour and became more three dimensional in form.
