The artist wrote (12 October 1958): ‘I cannot remember the date of this picture, but it was probably the early 1930s. The child was in from the village.’ She had lived at Myrtle Cottage, Newlyn, for about eighteen months c. 1907–8 when studying under Stanhope Forbes. A similar picture, but showing her own kitchen at North Corner, Newlyn, is ‘In the Kitchen’, exhibited at the R.A. in 1936 (203).
