Terry Frost greetings cards
Having joined the Antiques Roadshow in 2007, Grant is a relative newcomer to the team. He remembers well that pivotal first recording that secured his place. "It was a wonderful group of original greetings cards by the great 20th Century British artist Terry Frost. It was so nice to be able to start the show with such a lovely group of original studies and to be able to do the recording with such a wonderful owner – it gave me the confidence to do more!"
If Grant could choose his dream painting to come into a Roadshow, he’d choose a great pre-Raphaelite work as they have amazing technical detail and beauty. He also adores the work of Jack Butler Yeats, the great 20th Century Irish painter, and would be very excited to see one of his later great poetic/ expressionistic works circa 1940-1950.
When he’s not travelling the world with work, Grant enjoys playing rugby, cricket and chess, but his favourite hobby is to spend as much time as possible at home with his wife and two children.
