From 1928-30, Mahoney painted murals at Morley College with his colleagues Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious and later with Evelyn Dunbar at Brockley School in Kent. Known as an outstanding teacher, Mahoney taught at the Byam Shaw School of Drawing and Painting from 1954-63 and at the Royal Academy Schools from 1961-68. His work is represented at the Tate Gallery and he was elected a Royal Academician in 1968.  The picture was bought by the LACF in 1933.</font> <font size="4"><span style="display: none;"> </span></font>
