Dating to 1914 this portrait is likely to have been undertaken during Granger-Taylor's first year St. John’s Wood Art School (1914), after she had completed her initial training at The Royal Academy Schools. Her technical brilliance was to be further refined by a term of study at the Slade School of Fine Art in 1919, under Henry Tonks.
