Like many of the British linocut artists, Lill Tschudi often chose sporting themes for her work. Sporting activities provided excellent opportunities for artists to capture movement and portray physical effort. Tschudi was a major figure among the British linocut artists during the 1930s. She studied under Claude Flight in 1929 and1930 and then left London to study in Paris under the Cubist, André Lhote and the Futurist, Gino Severini. However, she retained close contact with Flight and Edith Lawrence throughout the 1930s and continued to exhibit in the annual British Linocut exhibitions.
