O'Neill reinterpreted the art historical subject of the reclining nude in a a number of key works in his career (such as The Blue Skirt, 1949, Ulster Museum, Belfast and Reclining Nude, private collection, sold these rooms 7 May 2008, lot 181). O'Neill travelled to Paris in the late 1940s, most probably sponsored by his dealer Victor Waddington, where in addition to the Old Masters, he encountered more contemporary takes of this classical genre, including Manet's Olympia. He was also inspired by the Expressionist works of Maurice Vlaminck whose influence is clear in the deep colour combinations of the present work. In the background of Seated Nude, O'Neill includes another painting of a reclining nude and such inclusions, together with the modelling of the figure and the compositional arrangement, displays O'Neill's avant-garde developments.
