(b Northwood, Middlesex [now in Greater London], 23 Mar. 1911; d Botallack Moor, nr. St Just, Cornwall, 23 Feb. 1975). British painter of German extraction (Aby Warburg was his father's cousin). He trained at the Slade School, and in the 1930s also studied in Paris under Bissière. In 1950 he began painting abstracts; initially he was influenced by developments in Paris (to which he regularly returned), but on a visit to the Netherlands in 1953 he was inspired more by Mondrian.
