Provenance: Private Collection

Having trained in Paris, with Maurice Denis, in London, at the Slade School of Fine Art, and in Rome, in 1924 Geoffrey Houghton Brown became a Roman Catholic and, from then on, religion strongly influenced his artistic output. He became a member of the Guild of Catholic Artists and wrote several articles for its journal, Art Notes. In 1945, he helped established a Church Decorators' Society for the development of sacred art.  Houghton Brown's style was inspired by  Picasso, Byzantine art and contemporary Italian painting.  He was a friend of the artist Roy de Maistre, Father Martin D'Arcy, and Oliver Messel
