Born in Southport and trained at Warrington School of Art and the Slade in London, Arthur Hayward served in the Royal Field Artillery in the First World War. He is thought to have settled in St Ives in Cornwall soon after. A principal of St Ives College of Art in the inter-war years, Hayward portrays himself in this striking self-portrait before a view of the village harbour. It is said that Hayward once set up his easel there to paint on a Sunday and he and his dog were thrown in the harbour by the villagers.
