Thomas Lowinsky studied at the Slade School of Art and had his first solo show at the Leicester Galleries in 1926. He did not paint commissioned portraits; instead Lowinsky worked from his friends or professional models. He liked to depict elegant women in sympathetic surroundings and usually chose a range of muted low-key colours for them and their setting. Lowinsky's paintings were executed with care, without any changes of mind or overtly expressive areas of brushwork. He was a meticulous worker, which resulted in very penetrating portraits, such as this work. We know nothing about the sitter nor where she sat, and can only admire her quiet elegance.
