    Frederick Gore studied painting at the Ruskin School while reading classics at Oxford. He later studied at Westminster Art School and the Slade School, and on leaving in 1937 he had his first solo exhibition at the Redfern Gallery, London. After serving in the army he started teaching at St Martin's School of Art and by 1951 was Head of Painting there - a position he held until he retired in 1979. Gore was elected Associate of Royal Academy in 1964 and RA in 1973. Since 1949 he has held a number of solo exhibitions in London and New York. His father was the painter Spencer Frederick Gore (1878-1914), a central figure in the Camden Town Group of artists.
