Maurice Greiffenhagen was appointed as Professor of Life Classes, with responsibility for drawing, painting and composition, at the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) in 1906. Although he set projects and checked on the progress of his students, he left much of the actual teaching in the hands of his assistant professors. It is possible that this life study was used by him as an example to his students. He remained on the staff of the GSA until 1928.
