Canvas, 20×16 (51×40·5).
Purchased from the artist through Arthur Tooth & Sons (Knapping Fund) 1940.
Exh: United Artists, R.A., January–March 1940 (1342).

Painted in Manchester in 1940, according to the artist (letter of 28 January 1958), but as the United Artists exhibition opened on the 5 January 1940, with Press and private views on the two preceding days, it must in fact have been completed late in the previous year.
