Literature: Evelyn Dunbar: A Life in Painting, Christopher Campbell-Howes, October 2016, page 59. This subject is probably Dunbar’s cousin Vera Swain (née Murgatroyd), who also appears as the distant figure standing in the window in A Knitting Party, here numbered 32. She had previously modelled for Dunbar, notably in Spring, one of the artist’s early essays in symbolic millinery.
We are grateful to Christopher Campbell-Howes for assistance.
