Provenance: Margaret Goodwin,

Gill Clarke has suggested that this wash drawing was probably painted at one of the Royal College of Art Life Classes.   Alternatively  the model  might be Margaret Goodwin herself from whose collection this drawing came.

Margaret Goodwin, a friend and contemporary of Evelyn Dunbar's at the Royal College of Art, School of Drawing and Painting, attended the sschool from 1929 to 1933.  The two  remained  friends.  It is recorded that they holidayed together, with Mrs Gwynne-Jones (mother of Allan Gwynne-Jones), at Strawberry cottage, possibly around the time war was declared, and  in  April 1941, in the Lake District, with Roger Folley, (Dunbar's future husband) and Glynn (William) Burton.

We are grateful to Gill Clarke for assistance.
