- Peter Fuller
Peter Michael Fuller (born 31st August 1947 in
Damascus, Syria— 1990) was a British art critic and magazine editor who was educated at Epsom Collegeand Peterhouse, Cambridge.
In the early 1970s he wrote for the radical "Black Dwarf" and "
Seven Days" newspapers and freelanced elsewhere subsequently. Originally a follower of writer John Berger, he moved to the political right in mid-life, coming into conflict with his former allies Art & Language.
Peter Fuller was the founding editor of the art magazine " Modern Painters", launched in February 1988, reflecting his admiration for the aesthetic principles of
John Ruskin. In the spring of 1989 he was appointed art critic of " The Sunday Telegraph". Along with such prestigious books as "Art and Psychoanalysis", Fuller wrote regularly for "Art Monthly UK" and "New Society" for nearly two decades. The archive of his letters, journals and writing is held at the TATE Gallery in London. The Peter Fuller Memorial Foundation, a registered English charity (no.1014623), was set up in 1991. The Foundation hosts an annual lecture at the Tate Gallery and runs the online art magazine "Art Influence". He died in a car accident on the M4on the 28th April 1990. Peter Fuller is buried in Stowlangtoft, Suffolk, UK.
