It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Fred Cuming RA at the age of 92 years. Fred was a Royal Academician for almost 50 years during which time he earned a reputation as a master of colour, light and atmosphere. He was still painting during the week he passed away, peacefully on Sunday at his home near Rye with his beloved family.
Fred studied at the Royal College of Art. He was elected ARA in 1969 and RA in 1974. His extraordinary devotion to painting over the course of a career spanning 75 years, has positioned him as one of the significant landscape painters of our age. Our thoughts are with his daughter Rachel and her family, his many friends and collectors who will greatly feel his loss.
Fred loved the gallery in Wimbledon Village and it has been a great privilege, over the last 10 years, to have exhibited his beautiful paintings and enjoyed his company at our Private Views.
