Trevelyan was not formally art trained. He himself taught at Chelsea (1950-55) and at the RCA (1955-63), becoming Head of Etching. Besides some mural work, he was a prolific printmaker and illustrator. He became a Royal Academician in 1987. Harbour was the first lithograph that Trevelyan made. He had started a picture circulating library in 1935, and that may have made him sympathetic to the School Prints project. And he was known to Read, who had selected some of Trevelyan’s work for the 1936 International Exhibition of Surrealism.
