Ivor Roberts-Jones was born on 2 November 1913. He studied at Goldsmiths’ College School of Art (from 1932) and at the Royal Academy Schools (from 1935). Then, during the Second World War, he served in the 53rd Welsh Division of the Royal Artillery and saw action in the Jungle Field Artillery in Burma (1940-46). On his return to London, he took a studio at Holland Park which he retained until his death, and became a part-time teacher at Goldsmiths’ College. He produced a portrait head of Clive Gardiner, the Principal of Goldsmiths’ College School of Art, in 1953, and in the same year held his first solo show at the Beaux-Arts Gallery.
