This work was originally painted and exhibited at the royal Academy in 1927.
The work became so severely damaged on return from an exhibition in USA that the artist had to remove all the pigment and completely repaint it, re-engaging the models , which took many months. The new work finally resulted in it becoming sufficiently different in composition and colour that it was allowed to be re-exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1947 under a new title of No.1 Dressing Room.
