W.H. Allen was an English born artist who migrated to New Zealand in 1925 with compatriot R. N. Field to teach at the Dunedin School of Art. The pair were recruited by the New Zealand Education Department under Superintendent Sanderson La Trobe. After a stint as art master at the Nelson College, Allen returned to England in the late 1930s and consequently his reputation as a teacher and artist have previously been overlooked.
