Donald Hamilton Fraser was born in 1929 in London. He studied at St Martin’s School of Art in London from 1949–1952 alongside notable contemporaries such as Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff and Sandra Blow. He was elected a fellow of the Royal College of Art in 1970, and became an Honorary Fellow in 1984.Donald’s first solo exhibition was in 1953, and that same year he received a French government scholarship to live and work in Paris. Famed for his abstract landscapes, Donald’s richly colourful works quickly established him as one of the most distinctive Modernist painters of his generation. Energy and vitality infuse his work, in which a dramatic use of colour creates an air of the unreal, while marks of his palette-knife technique lend rich texture to the painting surface.
