Vera Southby studied at the London School of Art and at the Scuola Britannica in Rome. She lived in China in the late 1920s and early 1930s, first in Kunming and then in Tianjin and Beijing. After a brief interval in Europe she returned to China in 1935, and was interned at Shanghai during the Sino-Japanese war. After the war she remarried and travelled with her husband, Ake Hartmann, in India, China and south-east Asia; the present picture dates from the mid-1950s.
Her paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1922 until she settled in Tuscany in 1961; exhibitions devoted to her work were held in Shanghai (1929), London (1935) San Francisco (1950-51), and at the Martyn Gregory Gallery in London in 1978.
