Descriptive note: This vigorous drawing is one of two known sketches made in preparation for a double portrait of the Milner sisters, now in a private collection. The drawing seems above all to be a portrait of the relationship between an elder and a younger sister, a relationship of love, admiration and a warmth reflected in the glow of sunshine filtered through foliage.
