Some scuffs - in need of restoration.
In 1922, on the strength of a Royal Exhibition in drawing, Mahoney
enrolled at the Royal College of Art, where he spent four productive
years under the
guidance of the College Principal and Professor of
Painting,William Rothenstein. Contemporaries at the college with whom
he formed life-long friendships included Edward Bawden, Barnett
Freedman, Percy Horton and Gerald Ososki.
This colour study is typical of the lyical compositions Mahoney produced during his RCA period.
