During the 1950s his art was influenced by Cézanne and Matisse and particularly by Nicolas de Staël, whose work helped him to combine figurative and abstract elements in his painting. Although he had no formal art training, Vaughan had studied Italian Renaissance art at school, which also influenced his sense of composition.
