This appears to be the same model as in Model with Gold Necklace and Locket (MIFI722). The model was said to be a cousin of Ms Josephine Bennett, an early owner of the painting. Ms. Bennett was possibly an Alten student.

This is one of few known pastels by Alten, and is the largest pastel composition known to date (2009).
