This print was published by the Leicester Galleries, who frequently exhibited Christopher Nevinson's work.
This print, which offers a view from an interior space through a distinctively Parisian window and terrace, relates to a painting created by Christopher Nevinson in the previous year. Both date from a period during which the artist became interested in depicting the alienation of urban life. Here, the viewer is placed within a shadowy apartment to suggest isolation. A view through the window reveals a woman in an adjacent apartment combing her hair while unaware that she is being watched, emphasizing the separation of lives otherwise lived closely.
