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. The influence of Samuel Palmer, whom Mahoney greatly admired, is much in evidence in this drawing.

We are grateful to Elizabeth Bulkeley for assistance.
