Walton lived in London between 1894 and 1904, living in Cheyne Walk in Chelsea, and was a neighbour of Whistler and John Lavery. Painted during his time in London, the present work is a study for Portrait of Miss Jane Aitken (private collection). In its posed long and strong profile with limited background and tones it clearly shows the influence of Whistler. The final portrait was highly regarded and was exhibited at the Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts in February 1894, no.279; Paris, Exposition Nationale des Beaux Arts, 1896, no.1235; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, 1896-1897; Berlin, Eduard Schulte Gallery, 1900; Liverpool, Autumn Exhibition, 1901, no.387. The convex mirror in this study was left out of the finished portrait and the decorative motifs on the backdrop were also omitted.
