Description / Expertise

The Holloway family moved from Doncaster to Nazeing in Essex, a few miles from Waltham Cross, in May 1931, to give the precocious young artist easy access to the opportunities afforded by London. This little colour linocut is a visual record of the move.
Having had his first one-man exhibition at the XXI Gallery in London, aged only seventeen, the family moved again, closer to London, to Harrow, in 1932.
