Henry Young Alison attended the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) as a student from 1905–1912. He returned to the GSA as a member of staff in 1928 and by 1932 he had been appointed as Evening School and General Course Supervisor. Between 1945 and 1946 he accepted the role of Interim-Director of the GSA prior to the appointment of a new director, Douglas Percy Bliss. In later years Alison concentrated his efforts on own his painting and this work dates from that period.
