Myerscough Walker was an architectural draughtsman. He trained at Leeds School of Art and went on to the Architectural Association in London. In 1931 he won the Tite prize and was celebrated in his career for his skill as a draughtsman – as well as architect, writer, artist, sculptor and stage designer. He worked with Berhold Lubetkin, the significant modernist architect, for several years.

Condition: generally very good; the odd gentle crease. Not backed.
