Signed lower right, oil on canvas. Unframed 71 cm x 91cm and frame adds about 12 cm all around. George Shaw was born in Glasgow in 1929. In 1947 Shaw abandoned a future in the merchant service when he earned a place at the Wimbledon College of Art, at that time a primary school for painters. Four years at the School provided a good grounding in academic painting from which Shaw launched career.
