Michael Ayrton's (1921-1975) education in Art was mostly inspired by his travels in Europe. He spent time in Vienna, and in 1937 shared a studio with John Minton in Paris, studing under Eugéne Bérman. After his return to England he taught at Camberwell School of Art in 1943-1944.
After receiving advice from Henry Moore in the early 1950's he began to sculpt bronze, deriving influence from a visit to Greece in 1958 where the Greek Mythologies played an important part of his inspiration.
