Catalogue Note

Painted in the early 1880s, the present work was likely executed in John Butler Yeats' studio on York Street, Dublin, where the artist had taken up residence on his return from London. Still in need of regular portrait commissions and struggling to meet them, it is probable works such as the present were explorations in a more general genre that he hoped he might find a buyer for.
