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.
  • History: date c. 1904 (by association with New-risen Hope); bought in auction (location and date uncertain, possibly Christie’s and early 1980s) by playwright and art dealer George Hulme; passed on to an art and antiques dealer friend, possibly 1990s, and sold at auction by the latter, 24 Apr 2018.
  • Location: private collection.

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