Self-portrait with Compositional Design, circa 1919

Provenance: the artist's own collection
This drawing dates to 1919 and includes an early compositional design for Knights' Village Street, Mill Hands Conversing, with which she won the first prize for the Slade Summer Competition of that year. This self-portrait has a gentleness which contrasts with the increasingly direct and introspective, almost harsh, nature of her later self-portraits.
