Catalogue Note

'... the finest works of 1911 and later were the sumptuous interiors often featuring one of his favourite models, the noted beauty, Miss Don Wauchope. She sat for Bunty [Cadell] on numerous occasions, as the model for a series of oils that he produced over the next fifteen years...'
Tom Hewlett, Cadell, The Life and Works of A Scottish Colourist, London, 1988, p.32
