Steer, Philip Wilson; painter; British artist, 1860-1942
The model for this painting was probably Miss Ethel Warwick, as may be deduced from a portrait of her in the National Gallery of South Africa, Cape Town, also of 1901, in which she is apparently wearing the same lace-edged jacket. Related drawings are in the Victoria and Albert Museum, Steer sketch-books, nos. E279-1942 and E289-1942.
