Henry Mundy was born in Birkenhead, Cheshire, in 1919. He moved to London to train at Camberwell School of Art from 1946 to 1950. His teachers included Victor Pasmore, Sir William Coldstream, Sir Lawrence Gowing and Michael Rothenstein. Mundy views his work as non-figurative and has offered purely formal interpretations of it, arguing that 'I only want to get the right intervals between the shapes in a way that satisfies me'. However others have seen his works as alluding to both still life and landscape perhaps because, as the critic David Sylvester remarked, they 'relate to visual experience, to seeing in a space which is all around one, to seeing as one moves about in space'.
