This important and highly worked drawing from the mid 1930s relates to the erotically charged series of nudes featuring Patricia Preece that Spencer completed at this period. It was this series that had a profound influence on the work of Lucian Freud. The present drawing has a close affinity to the famous 'boxed in' nude (Patricia Preece) below from 1935 (Private collection).
