N04595 WOMAN STANDING IN DOORWAY c. 1894
Canvas (unprimed), 32×18 (81×45·5).
Purchased from Oliver Simon (Lewis Publications ‘A’ Fund) 1931.
Coll: Oliver Simon was a cousin of the artist and probably acquired the picture direct.
A slight sketch done at the time when the influence of Whistler and Goya was still paramount. The artist notes his liking for a sized, unprimed canvas (Men and Memories, I, p.178).
