A pen drawing, The Fishwife [M.0212], about 130 mm diameter, is closely related to the oil.
Despite its small scale, the portrait is painted vigorously, with bright colours, and with very thick impasto, particularly on the face. It was painted in an ellipse within a rectangular card.
It was cleaned in 1950; it is very dark.
It is framed as an oval.
