Julian Trevelyan was a painter, printmaker, teacher and writer. Whilst studying English at Cambridge University, he ran a gallery with Humphrey Jennings. Before completing his course he left to become a painter. He moved to Paris to study printmaking and etching. Working alongside Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró and Max Ernst, Trevelyan soon adopted an abstract and dreamlike approach to the depiction everyday objects. On his return to England, he participated in the Surrealism Exhibition of 1936. Trevelyan taught etching at the Chelsea School of Art from 1950 to 1960 and at the Royal College of Art from 1955 to 1963.
