He worked under Walter Sickert as pupil and assistant. Many of his paintings were based on photographs of seaside towns in Wales, Ireland, northern France and Spain. The artist joined the staff of Chelsea College of Art where his colleagues included Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and John Piper. He died in North Africa in 1943 while on active service as a camouflage officer.  It is estimated at €2,000-€3,000.  Salvador Dali,  Banksy, Sir Terry Frost, Larry Rivers, Tracey Emin and Bob Dylan feature too.
