The St Ives location is fitting for Frost, as he resided there during the 1950s, his works in the Walk Along the Quay series beautifully capture St Ives' seaside.

Frost began painting during his time at a POW camp in Germany, 1943. Following the end of the war, he moved to St Ives, Cornwall in 1946. St Ives was a creative ground for modern British artists, such as sculptor Barbara Hepworth.

As well as his interpretations of St Ives seascape, Frost is also renowned for his portrayal of the Yorkshire Dales.
