This drawing was
exhibited at the 1916
Royal Society of Portrait Painters, hosted at the Grafton Galleries.
After attending the show Cynthia commented in her diary:
"We went to
to see the exhibition of Sargent drawings. It's a real nightmare to see
so many of one's friends so blatantly depicted staring at one from four
walls - I think the one of me presents the foulest woman I have ever
1915-1918. With a foreword by L. P. Hartley. London: Hutchinson of
1968. p. 174 )
Special thanks to Matt

of the JSS Gallery, for sending me notes regarding this image.
