George Bulleid was much admired as a watercolourist. As The Studio magazine noted, in a review of second annual exhibition of the Bath Society of Artists in 1905, ‘Two drawings by G. Lawrence Bulleid, A.R.W.S, have the intricacy of design, pure colour and wealth of detail beautifully drawn which are associated with his name.’The present sheet is unusual in Bulleid’s oeuvre in being a depiction of a young girl in contemporary dress.
