Donald Hamilton Fraser RA

Donald exhibited his highly acclaimed work in Paris, New York, Tokyo, Zurich and many other cities around the world. The list of galleries that own or have exhibited his work is phenomenal. Donald participated in many of the most significant exhibitions of British work including the Royal Academy's 25 Years of British Painting where he was also a Royal Academician and a trustee since 1995.

Donald's predominant subject matter was landscape. Here he combined his Scottish decent and his affinity with French painting from his study there in the 1950's. This was greatly reflected in his style and execution. He layered thick bright paint with a palette knife to produce an almost collage effect. The landscapes remain close to their origins whilst forming abstract almost dream-like fields of colour. Contrasting in style and highlighting Donald's diversity are his wonderful chalk and wash drawings of dancers. Each one captures individual character and emotion whilst revealing his intimate knowledge of dance. After much study and travel including tutoring at the Royal College of Art contact with the post war Ecole de Paris and a long relationship with the Royal Academy Donald spent his later years living with his wife by the river at Henley on Thames.

Donald Hamilton Fraser was one of Britain's best-loved artists, and was still working from his studio in Henley-on-Thames on the eve of his eightieth birthday. His career spanned over fifty years from his graduation from St. Martin's School of Art in 1952 to the exhibition of his final silkscreen prints and originals that took pride of place at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2009 (8th June - 16th August). To mark this special anniversary a new book 'Donald Hamilton Fraser 'A retrospective: Metamorphosis not Metaphor' by Clare Clinton was published.

Sadly Donald Hamilton Fraser passed away on the 2nd September 2009.
