Auerbach married Julia Wolstenholme in 1958, and she gave birth to their son Jacob (or Jake) later that year. They separated shortly after, and made a final reconciliation in 1976. Painted between 1978 and 1979, Julia Sleeping is an intimate and engaging portrait of Julia, with her head on a pillow facing him. The painting not only expresses Julia’s presence back at the centre of Auerbach’s life, but also an intense depth of emotion between the artist and his wife.
