Hidden in Turk’s Head Yard – an alleyway off Briggate – 'Whitelocks' is reckoned to be the oldest surviving pub in Leeds. In the 1940s and 1950s, when de Sausmarez was teaching in Leeds, it was a favourite haunt of writers, poets and artists, as well as academics. The measured poetic structure of the image is typical of his work, which acknowledged the tradition of Cézanne. An educationalist as well as painter, de Sausmarez’s book, 'Basic Design', provided a lucid account of practices and procedures available to schools and foundation courses in art, largely informed by his association with Harry Thubron at Leeds College of Art.
