Attended Uppingham School and left to join the family biscuit-making business, but left because he hated it and went to read history at Oxford University. On holiday in Italy he determined to become an artist against his father’s wishes, studied briefly at Byam Shaw School in the late 1930s, then for several years at Cedric Morris’s East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing where his future wife, Barbara Gilligan was also a student.
