Compared with most of Sickert's work, this painting is unusually well documented.

It was painted in his Fitzroy Street studio after he had returned to London from Dieppe and Venice. The picture is painted chiefly in low-toned greens, reds and browns, which are typical of his palette in this transitional period between the work he produced in Venice and Dieppe (1903-5), and the beginning of the Camden Town period.
