    Provenance
    Jacqueline & Ivor Goddard Collection, Isle of Wight (a gift from the artist in 1962).
    Thence by descent to the present owner, UK.

    Jacqueline Goddard (née Barsotti, 1911-2003) was a favourite model and close friend of the Surrealist artist and photographer Man Ray, having first met him in Paris in 1927 at the age of just sixteen. Goddard also modelled for Matisse, Foujita, Giacometti and Picasso, but moved away from these bohemian circles upon her marriage to Major Creed-Miles in 1938. A second marriage followed in 1949 to the photographer Ivor Goddard, with whom she lived on the Isle of Wight until her death at the age of 91, and to whom the present work is dedicated.
