Bomberg’s late portraits were painted using thick brushmarks, applied swiftly and freely to the canvas, in order to express the artist’s feelings about the sitter. His painting style was considered to be inappropriate for conventional portraiture, and he received few commissions, as most people preferred the more naturalistic, smooth finish practised by artists such as Stanley Spencer. Bomberg was restricted to painting self portraits or portraits of close relatives, such as his brother-in-law, Jimmy Newmark.
