A watercolour of the modernist Wolfson College, featuring a 1970s mint-green car. Founded in 1965, its main building (designed by Powell and Moya Architects) was completed in 1974. Pomeroy portrays it in winter, with the cloudy sky and bare trees melding with the grey of the modernist facade.

William Gavin Ingram Pomeroy was born in Newlyn, Cornwall. From 1947 he studied architecture under Geoffrey Bazeley, and later became a lecturer for the Plymouth School of Architecture. He became the senior lecturer in architecture at what is now Plymouth University and retired in 1999.
