Terence Cuneo

Terence Cuneo Terence Cuneo...Artist

Terence Cuneo was born in 1906 and his career at the top of the British art world spanned over half a century.

Known above all for his railway scenes, much of Cuneo’s career was taken up with official commissions. Starting out as an illustrator, his reputation was established by his work as a war artist during the Second World War. Subsequently, he was asked to paint a series of railway posters and he became a true household name when he was commissioned to paint the Queen at her coronation in 1953; this painting now hangs in Buckingham Palace.

His position at the peak of the art world thus confirmed, Cuneo was much in demand both as a painter of portraits of the great and good, including The Queen and Field Marshal Montgomery, but also as a supreme exponent of industrial and military scenes and landscapes. Cuneo also become famous for his "mouse paintings", a legacy of which was the inclusion of his trademark small mouse on each of his canvases. The addition of the mouse was inspired by a simple domestic incident, when the artist’s cat brought in a dead fieldmouse and, on impulse, Cuneo painted a tiny mouse on a lump of sugar. From this small start, the addition of the mouse became a noted feature of all his paintings and Cuneo was also inspired to create many whimsical larger paintings of mice in addition to his grander commissions.

Above all, Cuneo will be remembered for his love of trains. His affection was acknowledged when four of his paintings of railway engines were used for postage stamps in Great Britain in 1985, an InterCity locomotive was named in his honour in 1990 and a statue of Cuneo has recently been unveiled at Waterloo Station, overlooking the Eurostar terminal.

Terence Cuneo died in 1996.
