Christopher Wood was born in England and examined engineering at Liverpool University. He met Augustus John, who urged him to be a painter. He trained to be a painter in Paris, where he met Picasso and Diaghilev, and he went around Europe and North Africa somewhere in the range of 1922 and 1924. He met Ben Nicholson in 1926. Nicholson’s devotion to his work had a critical influence, and Wood, like this, displayed his paintings. Like Nicholson, he appreciated Alfred Wallis. Wood painted beachfront scenes, and his most sensitive pieces are viewed as those painted in Breton.
