After studying in Oxford and London, Armstrong established his reputation during the 1930s as an illustrator and designer. He became a member of Unit One in 1933 and developed a dream-like Surrealist style. Armstrong's fascination for ruined buildings and images of decay found a natural outlet when he became an official war artist. This bombed farmhouse may be the same one that Graham Sutherland painted in 1940, at Aberthaw near the RAF station at St Athan, west of Cardiff.
