Aldridge was a member of the Seven and Five Society, an evolving group of painters and sculptors who embraced a lyrical vision of landscape through the 1920s and into the next decade. The membership was eclectic to say the least, featuring at various times David Jones, Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Leon Underwood, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Christopher Wood, Alfred Wallis, Edward Bawden and John Piper. Aldridge was at the more conservative end of this spectrum.
