Sensitive, thoughtful, poetic, inspirational—these are the words that come to mind when one considers the work of renowned English painter Fred Cuming. One of the most admired landscape artists of the present day, Cuming is particularly respected for his powerful ability to capture atmosphere and sense of place, as well as his observations and depictions of light. In Another Figure in the Landscape, Cuming explains his artistic motivation, his struggles and accomplishments, and his unique working methods. Visual intelligence, observation, color, subjects, and sites are all discussed as he explains in detail the power of paint, artistic influences, and sources of inspiration.
A senior Royal Academician with the Royal Academy of Arts, Cuming had an artistic career spanning over sixty years and has produced over five thousand paintings. This book, written by the artist himself and with an introduction by Richard Holmes, is an intriguing insight into the mind and methods one of England’s leading contemporary landscape artists.
