Hambling was the first Artist in Residence at the National Gallery in London in 1980–1981, during which period she painted a celebrated series of portraits of the comedian, Max Wall. Her admiration for Francis Bacon (1909–1992), the greatest English painter of the human figure in the twentieth century, is evident in this portrait.
