Geoffrey Harris was born in Nottingham in 1928 and studied at Leeds College of Art and the Royal College of Art. He worked as an assistant for Leon Underwood, David John, and William Bloye and lectured at several art colleges including Birmingham, Stourbridge, Bromley, and Ravensbourne. However, he is perhaps best known for, and his work most influenced by, his period working as a studio assistant for Henry Moore from 1957-1960. Harris had solo exhibitions at the Leicester Galleries and the Queen's Square Gallery in 1964. Lots 169 to 180 all come from the artist's studio.
