  • Donald Hamilton Fraser is a highly acclaimed British painter. Fraser attended the prestigious St. Martins School of Art alongside notable contemporaries including Frank Auerbach and over the course of his career had frequent one man exhibitions at Gimpel Fils in London and Paul Rosenberg Gallery in New York.

    Fraser's predominant subject matter was the landscape. Inspired by the Scottish landscape of his ancestors, he combined this with his affinity with French Modern painting experienced first hand in Paris during his studies there in the 1950s.

    His landscapes were executed with vibrant colours and broad brushstrokes. Fraser layered thick bright paint with a palette knife to produce an almost collage-like effect, whilst forming abstract dream-like fields of colour. Fraser taught at the Royal College of Art for much of his career, and received numerous awards for his painting. He was elected as a member of the Royal Academy in 1975.
