Product story

Senior Academician Fred Cuming RA’s work is characterised by his exploration of dramatic light and shadow within the natural landscape. Much of his work celebrates Southern English coastlines including the sea and skies of Hastings and Rye often illuminated by dawn, dusk or glowing moonlight. However, Cuming also paints with an imaginative breadth that has taken his practice further afield to the natural and urban landscapes of Italy and beyond. Reflecting upon the presence of man and society within the nature, Cuming continues to work with passion and energy into his 80s and has produced a number of new paintings for this exhibition that are being shown for the first time.

This screen print forms part of a selection of Italian landscapes in this show. It offers a calm vista over the waters of the Venetian Lagoon in Northern Italy, dappled by bronzed clouds.

One of a small number of limited edition prints available in the exhibition, oil-based ink has been used here to re-create the rich and dramatic palette which characterises Cuming’s paintings. This work was printed at Advanced Graphics London.
