This painting was originally the right-hand portion of ‘The Ferry’, N04496; the canvas was subsequently cut in half to form two separate compositions, this portion being entitled ‘Euphemia’ after the model Euphemia Lamb (see Epstein, N03187); at this time there was a small amount of repainting. The original composition is reproduced in Studio, XLVII, 1909, p.187.
