Provenance: the artist's wife, Betty Malam, and thence by descent

In 1922, Rollinson married one of his students, Betty Malam, an accomplished artist and miniaturist in her own right and the model for this painting. This portrait, which remained with the artist throughout his life, and dates to the time of the marriage, captures the intimacy which clearly existed between artist and model.
