Costume Study - Regent Street Model

Description
This watercolour study was painted by Judith Ackland (1892-1971) when she was 28 years old. It depicts a glamorous woman in a long black evening dress admiring herself in front of a mirror.

Ackland studied art at Bideford Art School before moving to London to attend Regent Street Polytechnic, where she met her partner Mary Stella Edwards. This delicate costume study is thought to date from her time in London.
