Bush lived at 19 Queensland Avenue, Merton Park, SW19, in a custom-built house with an extra storey for his studio. Bush saw the ancestry of his art in the quiet dignity of Dutch and Flemish domestic scenes, and, as his younger daughter recalled, mixed pigments and oils, 'so that his work should mellow, glow and last, and if possible, improve' (The Art of the Garden, Tate, 2004, p. 85).
