He left England in 1925 for Paris where he studied with Fernand Leger and Andre Andre Lhote and worked with Le Corbusier. He returned to England after 8 years and became part of the circle of artists that formed around Henry Moore and Ben Nicholson. By 1938 he had a Studio in NYC until he joined the art faculty at Cornell University, where he taught until his death in 1963. He exhibited widely at MOMA, Whitney, Art Institute of Chicago and the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburg. This Still Life is considered an example of his mature work, where he has taken his early influences from both Leger and Nicholson and created a style unique unto himself.
