Catalogue Note

John Butler Yeats embarked on a number of pencil self-portraits following a commission by his patron John Quinn to paint a large oil self-portrait in 1911 (see lot 64). The present work perhaps relates most closely to the final portrait, depicting him in similar pose and outfit within his studio at the Petitpas boarding house in New York.
