This is one of several studies for a larger painting, 'The Bandstand', which is in the Tate collection. The artist was born in Carmarthen, the son of the watercolourist Benjamin Archibald Lewis, and later served in the war in North Africa where he died of malaria in 1943. Influenced by Sickert, under whom he studied, he is best known for his landscape and genre paintings using bold blocks of colour over a warm underpainting.
