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.
