This bold and rare self portrait was painted around 1913 when Dora Carrington was almost at the end of her time at the Slade School of Fine Art. She was considered to be one of the most talented students of her generation, which included many of the key names of 20th-century British art, such as Stanley Spencer, David Bomberg, William Roberts, Mark Gertler, Christopher Nevinson, Paul Nash and others.
