The canvas appears to have been cut from a larger piece and glued to a second piece of canvas, with a thin ruled line visible along the edge in places, a characteristic also noted in New-risen Hope (Tate).
‘Nude in landscape’ is written in modern marker pen on the back of frame and the canvas has been relined.
- Media: oil on canvas.
- Dimensions: 615 x 225 mm (0.14 m²), unframed.

The Melbourne New-risen Hope has a butterfly on the child’s chest, a motif also present in the Nude in landscape sketch.
