N04497 PORTRAIT STUDY c. 1901–6
 
Not inscribed.
Oil on millboard, 17×12 1/4 (43×31). On the reverse is a study of a man in bed and a nurse holding a lamp.
Purchased from Arthur Blunt (Clarke Fund) 1930.
Coll: This and No.4498 were two of three such portrait studies which were offered to the Tate Gallery by Arthur Blunt.
Lit: Rothenstein, 1938, p.259.

This and the following portrait study (N04498) may be of the artist's wife Stella Maris, whom he married in 1901. There is some likeness between these paintings and two photographs of Mrs Conder which are in the Tate Gallery archives. A photograph of Mrs Conder, taken shortly after her marriage, is reproduced by Rothenstein, op. cit., facing p.192.
