The strong Expressionist lines and bold colour are typical of Moss’s work and reflect the harrowing subjects of death and entrapment in this painting. The dark greens in the sky echo his Second World War work as a camouflage designer and reiterate the fight against Nazi persecution. Born in Ipswich in 1914, Colin Moss studied at the Plymouth Art School from 1930–1934, after which he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art where he studied under Gilbert Spencer among others.
