    The present work is probably a sketch of the artist's daughter, Kitty, circa 1892. A similar hat features in Miss Kit, 1892 (Private collection), and Shannon also painted a number of studies of Kitty reading in the same period which bear a close resemblance to this charming study.

    Provenance

    The artist's estate, and by descent.
