    As a young child Charles Blackman experienced an unsettled family life with his mother and three sisters Doreen, June and Pat. Abandoned by his father when Charles was four years old, his mother and sisters became the initial source of his worldly experiences. Through them Blackman came to know and understand femininity. In the painting Doreen, childhood, reminiscence and the intimacy of the moment are revealed through the solitary figure of a young girl alone in a streetscape. The artist recalls his past as an interior world with thoughts and feelings of nostalgia. Reflective of his childhood, Blackman has inscribed the name of his sister Doreen beneath the image.
