The life and work of Terence Cuneo

The Cuneo Society


The Cuneo Society promotes and encourages interest in the life and work of Terence Cuneo, one of the 20th century's greatest artists, and the art of his family members. Terence Cuneo's father, Cyrus, and mother, Nell, were both noted artists in their own right, as well as other family members.

Terence Cuneo was a prolific artist. Many believe he was the greatest railway painter of the 20th century. From being the official artist at the Queen's Coronation, to African landscapes, portraits, street scenes, and industrial plant, his style is instantly recognisable. As well as his attention to detail, Terence Cuneo is known as the 'mouse' artist. Many of his pictures have a small mouse hidden away to find and delight.

The Cuneo Society, which has around 170 members, holds regular events and meetings, produces a Journal for all members, and promotes research on the artist and his work. Often visits and viewings include works by the artist which are not on general public view. A regular occasion each autumn is a walk, taking in sights and pictures and events linked to the artist and his family.

We are a charity, whose objects are 'to advance the education of the public in the works of Terence Cuneo'. Activities such as this website, Facebook, and exhibitions and presentations support that object.

It's also important that the society is a community. We share a common interest, and there are many good friendships. Fellowship through a common interest and aim is a key to the society's success and we welcome new members who may only just have heard of Terence Cuneo and his family; or may have a large collection of his works. Either way, please do get in touch and we're always happy to engage with new members and welcome them to our Society and the world of Terence Cuneo and his family.

Our latest news can be found on Facebook.
