A similar nude study was exhibited by McEvoy at the New English Art Club in winter 1914 and remained, as did the present work, in the possession of the McEvoy family.

This intimate study of a seated nude was painted c. 1914 and demonstrates McEvoy’s remarkable talent when working in watercolour.

The artist has first drawn the outline of the female figure in pencil and has then applied multiple layers of colour washes. Each time a layer has been applied, McEvoy has ‘fluidified’ the surface with a damp cloth or sponge, revealing the texture of the paper support and giving the surface an almost abraded appearance. This was one of McEvoy’s favourite techniques and can be discerned in most of his works on paper.
