12 December 2017:

In my capacity as Deputy Chair of the Science Museum Group, I was invited to open a wide-ranging exhibition of Cuneo's art, this being the University of Hull's final contribution to Hull's year as the UK City of Culture 2017.

Curated by Science Museum group director Ian Blatchford, and Chief Curator of the National Railway Museum, Andrew McLean, the exhibition explores Cuneo's portrayal of power through the Science Museum Group's collection of his work and from rarely seen loan material.

Amongst the exhibits was the painting shown entitled "Giants refreshed: Pacifics in the Doncaster Locomotive Works", courtesy of the Doncaster Heritage Services © the estate of Terence Cuneo/ Bridgeman Images
