Catalogue Note

The present picture was painted c.1911. The same model appears in Kennington's Royal Academy exhibit of 1911 A Man of Letters in which she is dressed in the same white lace blouse and with her hair gathered in a distinctly Edwardian style. The setting for both pictures was probably Kennington's parlour at his London home on Netherton Grove off the Fulham Road and it is also possible that the model was the artist's daughter, Alice.
