Etching on Wove paper. Signed by the artist lower left in pencil; numbered 10/50 lower right in pencil.
This portrait of Dominie, Kitaj’s adopted daughter, is one of the few etchings produced by the artist. The shape of Dominie’s wide sunhat and its patterned band sets off the sensitive and elegant lines of her face. Kitaj and his wife adopted her from India in 1964, and it’s possible this portrait was drawn at their house in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, a port town in Catalonia.
A copy of this print is in the collection of the British Museum, London.
