Guy Grey-Smith, fresco, 1963
In 1963 Guy Grey-Smith was invited to contribute a fresco for Saint George's College by the architects Hobbs, Winning and Leighton. He covered the square wall section under the stairs (now removed) with plaster and, while still wet, painted the surface with red, yellow, grey and black pigments before making bold incisions with the trowel to leave a white drawn superstructure. Composed in three sections, the square mural depicts the Tree of Knowledge, Christianity and the Tree of Life.
