Entitled 'Senorita 'S'', this painting is thought to be a portrait of the artist’s first wife, Dorothy Nicholson. The painting is a strikingly attractive portrait of a young woman in a colourful shawl – an archetypically Spanish image. The figure is tightly wrapped in a shawl, hiding her arms and hands. Is the shawl, with its ornate pattern, intended as a means of showing the artist’s technical expertise or does it symbolise the woman feeling trapped? Like her uneasy pose, the young woman’s face has a neutral and enigmatic expression.
