Footnotes

  • By 1939 Nolan had been immersed in European contemporary art for several years, notably the works of Miró, Klee, and Ernst. That year the Herald newspaper, under Sir Keith Murdoch and through the influence of art critic Basil Burdett, arranged a major exhibition of French and British modern art which provided an opportunity for Nolan to see international works first-hand. The present painting may draw on Picasso's paintings of the early 1930s and has traces of works such as Girl before a mirror 1932 in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and Woman with a book, 1932 in the collection of the Norton Simon Museum, California.
