The subject of this painting is Dorelia, the artist’s second wife. Hitherto John had been better known as a draughtsmen and opinions differed about the quality of his other work when it was first exhibited. Contemporary opinion was more sure about the merits of ‘The Smiling Woman’. It was considered John’s ‘arrival’ in painting, as definitely as he had done long ago in his drawings.
