As Director of the National Portrait Gallery (1895–1909), he oversaw its establishment on the present site. He held the Directorship jointly with that of Surveyor of the King's Pictures (1901–1927). The most prolific contributor to the Dictionary of National Biography (1900), Cust wrote more than three hundred entries. He was co-editor of the Burlington with Roger Fry from 1909 to 1919, and as major contributor on early British art, particularly portraiture, was a foil to Fry in many ways including in the matter of dress. But his tastes were broad, and he was on the executive committee of Fry's Manet and the Post-Impressionists exhibition in 1910, and was for many years chairman of the Art for Schools Association.
