Provenance: Laporte Corporate Art Collection, accession number L64.98
Exhibited: Bloomsbury Workshop, 1999

This still life was painted on Hepworth's return to London, after having spent four years in Paris studying in André Lhote's studio. It is a fusion of the Bloomsbury style (she was associated with and promoted by the Bloomsbury group) and Lhote's machine age classicism.

Hepworth mostly exhibited under the name of her lifelong companion and fellow painter Patricia Preece. As a result, their work has frequently been confused. We are grateful to Michael Dickens for his assistance. He is currently preparing a book on the life and work of Dorothy Hepworth and Patricia Preece.
