1913 - 2009

Frederick Gore, who died on August 31 aged 95, was that rare thing in the art world: a prolific and successful painter who also managed to sustain several active and parallel careers, as teacher, art-school administrator and committee man.

Gore studied painting at the Ruskin School while reading Classics at Oxford and subsequently at the Westminster Art School and Slade.
