This frankly-portrayed nude is typical of the monumental female forms that dominate Gertler’s last decade and shocked some of his contemporaries. Stripped of the distracting luxuriousness of studio props, the model’s own magnificence provides the focus. The son of poor Austrian-Jewish immigrants, Gertler attended the Slade School of Art supported by the Jewish Educational Aid Society, winning a clutch of prizes and a Slade scholarship.
