Drawing of a girl seated, facing the viewer, with her hands resting in her lap. Her legs are bent and turned to the right and she is slightly bent forwards, her head tilted to the left. She is wearing a slash neck top with short sleeves and her hair has a central parting with some hair fallin gover her left eye.. The right side of the drawing is outlined in blue watercolour. One of a series of figure studies Lewis created after the war between 1919 and 1922. Dissatified with his wartime drawings, Lewis changed his technique and developed a new linear style that reflected the influence of contemporary Continental styles. This drawing recalls Modigliani with its arcing outlines and partial shading.
