Gwynne-Jones taught most of the East Kent School at the Royal College of Art. John Ward in particular admired him greatly and remained close to him. After Sergeant had his first exhibition at the Maas Gallery, instead of cashing the cheque for his share in the proceedings, he asked us to make an offer on a painting by Gwynne-Jones that Agnew's were selling - and so the deal was done, and Sergeant was paid for years of hard work only with a picture by one of his heroes.
