Born in London in 1907, artist Terence Cuneo was the son of two illustrators who gave him his first lessons in art. He later studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Slade School before becoming an illustrator himself. Cuneo served as an official war artist during World War II, which sparked his interest in painting rather than drawing. Terence Cuneo's original paintings often featured military and engineering subjects, especially trains and railways, although he was also known for fantasy-driven paintings, many of which featured mice.
As an artist, Terence Cuneo loved to match his fascination with engineering with his art, painting locomotives as well as images of busy train stations and factory floors. He also painted human and animal portraits. Terence Cuneo's prints were transformed into jigsaw puzzles, posters, and postage stamps.
