Edna Clarke Hall (née Waugh) was one of the star pupils of the Slade School of Art. The training stressed the importance of vigorous drawing and Hall was known primarily for graphic work, particularly her illustrations to ‘Wuthering Heights’, and she also wrote poetry. This is probably the artist’s only oil painting and was made under the direction of Gwen John. The collection of still-life objects suggests a story.
