Margot Philips was largely self-taught but during the 1950s she attended summer school classes taken by Colin McCahon. He encouraged her to ‘experiment and remain true to her vision’. This painting was formerly in the collection of McCahon and his wife, Anne Hamblett. It was purportedly a gift from Philips.
