Lot Essay

Dr. Arthur Stanbury Cobbledick, M.D., was an opthalmologist who treated Sickert for an eye ailment, and attended classes at Sickert's Highbury Place school. The present work is a second version of a portrait exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1930, no.256, which was painted in lieu of medical fees.
