Jack Shadbolt took night classes with Frederick Varley at the Vancouver School of Art while teaching high school in the city. In 1938 he was hired as an instructor at the Vancouver School of Art, eventually becoming the head of Painting and Drawing, a position he held until 1966.

From 1936 to 1952 the school was located at Cambie and Dunsmuir, as depicted in this work.

The abstract composition on verso is mixed media on paper and is signed and dated 1961.
