Provenance: The artist's son, Richard Sorrell
Sacha Llewellyn & Richard Sorrell (ed), Alan Sorrell; the Life and Works of an English Neo-Romantic Artist, (Bristol: Sansom & Co.) 2013, p 24.

Sorrell undertook commercial work throughout his career - it provided a source of income with which he could subsidise his other interests.  With his early art school training at Southend and the Royal College of Art he was quick to develop a strong graphic style which translated very effectively into printed designs.
