Born in Dulwich, Anthony Gross attended then taught at the Slade School of Fine Art and also studied at the Académie Julian and École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Gross, together with his long-time friend and colleague Stanley William Hayter, studied at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in 1925-26. During this time, both artists learned engraving from Polish printmaker Joseph Hecht. Hayter later went on to found Atelier 17 in Paris. After studying in Madrid and Paris, Gross settled in France, working on oils, watercolours, and printmaking. During World War II he held a post as Official War Artist in Egypt, Burma, and India, capturing scenes of daily life, and was in the D-Day landings with the 50th division. His prolific career resulted in a fine body of over 400 etchings, many of which cover life in France.
