Although depicting the artist's niece and painted circa 1940 at the Whelan family home in Dublin, the feeling achieved is clearly of domestic life in a rural cottage at the end of the 19th century. In a sparse room, a young woman sews beside a table placed in front of a fireplace. The earthy tones emphasise the rural setting, while the composition and use of light also reveals the artist's interest in the early Dutch genre masters. Whelan studied at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art under William Orpen whose influence can be seen in the free, lively brushwork that cleverly evokes different textural surfaces. Aside from such genre scenes, Whelan became one of the leading portraitists of the age.
