Biography – Terence Cuneo [1907-1996]
Born in London in 1907, the son of artists Cyrus Cuneo and Nell Tenison. He studied at the Slade School before undertaking work as an illustrator for books and magazines. In the 1930’s he started oil painting and later during World War II painted war subjects and worked for the War Artists’ Advisory Committee. His work has been used for books, railway poster, model railway catalogues and stamps. From around 1954 Terence Cuneo put a small hidden mouse in his oil paintings that became his trademark in his later paintings. After a long career he died in 1996.

Some of the Terence Cuneo paintings we buy were acquired direct from the artist studio in East Molesey or from companies who commissioned him. My father knew him and I remember going to his studio as a boy and gazing at his large canvases of the steam trains. Others he sold, supporting original labels, may have been sold from the following Terence Cuneo galleries and auction houses: Equestrian Society at the Mall Galleries, Bonhams, Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
