Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Encouraged by Van Gogh, Livens moved to Paris where he studied modern French painting and was particularly impressed by the figures and landscapes of Manet and still life paintings of Ribot. He also admired Whistler's work for its "elimination of the superfluous".
The subject of this drawing is probably Livens' wife Gertrude.
This drawing is sold mounted but unframed.
Back in London he exhibited at the Royal Academy, New English Arts Club and Royal Society of British Artists. He was a member of the International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers, Whistler being it's first president.
Livens stopped painting in 1930 as a result of illness and died in 1936.
A major exhibition was held by Belgrave Gallery London in 1978.
