This photograph was taken early in Freud's career, soon after studying at Goldsmith's College (19423) and his first solo exhibition at London's Reid & Lefèvre Gallery in 1944. Other poses from this sitting show Freud with Lorna Wishart, his lover and muse at the time, who modelled for his painting Woman with a Daffodil (1945).
