Austrian-born sculptor Bruno Simon was interned in Australia during the Second World War, and after release spent four years in the Citizens Military Force. His 'Chinese Girl' was created in Australia in 1946 and was one of two sculptures (the other, 'Head of a Boy (aka David)' is also in the Ben Uri Collection) which made him a finalist for the 1948 Wynne Prize for art in New South Wales.
