Art Detective research supported by photographic evidence has concluded that the sitter is almost certainly Winifred Elizabeth Beatrice Hardman (1890–1972).

Hardman, who studied at St John's Wood School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools (1913–1921), was a portrait painter, mural decorator and signboard artist, who from 1914 to 1939 exhibited at the Royal Academy; Royal Scottish Academy; International Society; Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; Manchester City Art Gallery; New English Art Club; Redfern Gallery and Goupil Gallery. Connard and Hardman are very likely to have known each other from the early 1920s, probably having met through the RA.
