'Orange' was purchased by the Friends of the Mead Gallery to celebrate the award of an honorary doctorate to Sir Terry Frost in 2000. It is a characteristically colourful and energetic collage in which he was returning to themes featured in his early paintings – in this case, motifs inspired by bobbing boats moored in a harbour. Notable examples are 'Green Black and White Movement' (1951) and 'Black and White Movement' (1952) in the Tate Gallery and 'Blue Movement' (1957) in the Vancouver Art Gallery. Whereas the main emphasis in these works was on movement and rhythm, the 1999 interpretation has the addition of joyous colour, typical of so much of Frost's later work. This collage was a prototype for a larger version, given a different title, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 2000.
