ABOUT THE ARTIST
Terence Tenison Cuneo was born in 1907 and was a prolific English painter, noted for his scenes of railways, horses and military actions. He was commissioned to paint many important pieces throughout modern British history. During the War, Cuneo was commissioned by the Foreign Office to produce anti-Nazi drawings and cartoons and an exhibition of his war works was held at the Palaquin Fine Arts gallery in 1942. Eleven years later, he was the official artist for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. A bronze statue of Terence stood in the main concourse at Waterloo station in London for many years, and now resides at Brompton Barracks in Chatham, Kent.
