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.
