Paul Hogarth was born in Kendal in Cumbria, and trained at the Manchester College of Art and St Martin's School of Art in London. Longing to be a 'communicator rather than a painter' he travelled extensively, recording his surroundings in drawings and prints. This work depicts the Bab Anduluz, or the Andalusian Gate, which leads into the quarter of old Fez in Morocco. Hogarth is best known today for his cover illustrations for books by Graham Greene and John Betjeman. He became a Royal Academician in 1984, five years after receiving an OBE.
