This painting depicts Rose, one of Clara's six sisters and a favourite model of Jacob Epstein, noted for her flaming red hair (see Liss Fine Art, 2004, cat. no. 9). It was undertaken whilst Klinghoffer was in her penultimate year at the Slade. 'I consider Klinghoffer,' Epstein later wrote, 'an artist of great talent - a painter and draughtswoman of the first order.. . As a draughtswoman her understanding of form places her in the very first rank of draughtswomen in the world' (30.3.39, copyright: Visible Ink Incorporated).
