Footnotes

  • Francis Helps was the official artist of the 1922-1924 Mallory and Irvine Everest Expedition. Having been a student at the Slade School of Fine Art and a volunteer for the Artists' Rifles, Helps seemed a perfect candidate. The present study dates from the second expedition to achieve the first ascent of Mount Everest. Unlike Mallory and Irvine, Helps managed to return home. His art career continued to flourish and between 1931 and 1934 Helps taught at the Royal College of Art and became a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1933.
