Queen's artist Cuneo lived here
Can you spot Cuneo's hidden mouse in his paintings?
Location: 205 Ember Lane, East Molesey
Description: Artist Terence Tenison Cuneo lived here from 1940 until his death in 1996.
Artist and illustrator Cuneo's fame peaked when he was invited to paint the scene of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. After the coronation, he went on to paint the Queen in a further 16 other commissions.
Since then, all of Cuneo's paintings contain his trademark - a hidden mouse, concealed somewhere in the painting!
He is also best known for his vibrant paintings depicting the social and civic life of Britain including scenes with a wide range of subjects including the railways, industrial, rural and wildlife scenes, and military and ceremonial events.
