An illustrator, poster designer, painter, printmaker and art editor. Ainsworth studied at the Royal College of Art in the late 1920s. Between the wars he exhibited at the Royal Academy, Manchester City Art Gallery, New English Art Club and Goupil Gallery. During the 1930s he designed posters for Shell and the Empire Marketing Board. His stunning poster "Gordale Scar - The Craven Fault", published by Shell in 1933, is related to the present work.

Ainworth became art editor for the Picture Post and in this role he sent Mervyn Peake to witness the liberation of Belsen concentration camp. He went to camp himself shorlty afterwards to make his own set of powerful illustrations which were later published in the magazine.
