One of many works we have by Stroudley.
James Stroudley was a painter, printmaker and teacher, he was born and lived in London. He studied at Clapham School of Art, 1923-27, and at the Royal College of Art, 1927-30. Stroudley was the first Abbey Major Scholar, 1930-3, which afforded him three years' traveling in Italy. Thus his main influences were classic Italian painters, notably Giotto and Piero della Francesca, although from the late 1930s his work was increasingly influenced by Cubism. He became a visiting lecturer at the Royal Academy Schools. He showed at the RA, the RBA, of which he was made a member in 1934, and the RE. Arthur Tooth and Apollinaire Gallery gave him solo exhibitions and public collections in Bradford, Brighton, Coventry and Rochdale hold examples of his work.

His compositions from his Rome period are among the last wholly successful decorative cycles produced by a Rome Scholar prior to World War II. His drawings from the period are technically brilliant and bear comparison with those of Eric Kennington. During the post-war era he moved increasingly towards abstraction.
