Trewellard Sun #5
A framed linocut in two colours with added pencil, image size 31 cm in diameter and sheet size 64 x 65 cm, published in 1989 by the Paragon Press in an edition of 40.
DetailsThe Trewellard Sun series (1989) was the first to be commissioned by Charles Booth-Clibborn (owner of Paragon Press).
Linocut was chosen as the medium for the strong, flat and rich colours that could be achieved.
From his home in Newlyn, Terry Frost could see the sun set over the tin mines near the village of Trewellard in the West.
The sun, as well as circles, had been a recurring theme in his work ever since his move to Cornwall.
