PROVENANCE:
Arthur Knyvett-Lee and by descent

In 1923 Arthur Knyvett-Lee co-founded the Redfern Gallery with Anthony Maxtone-Graham as an artists' collective. In 1925 the gallery held Bissill's first one-man show, which brought the artist wide acclaim. The following year, when The Student was completed, Bissill is known to have travelled to Paris where he got more aquainted with the modern art scene there. The present work showcases the artist's response to Futurism and the British Vorticists whose works he would have seen in London.
