    Medworth held an exhibition at London's Goupil Gallery titled 'Mother and child' in which this drawing may have been included among the 56 in the show.

    An illustration in his 'Figure drawing', London: Faber and Faber, 1940, p. 177, illus. 228

    Accompanying text reads ...
    "Diagram 227 shows that scale dominated execution in making it technically difficult to reproduce the smallest details; while Diagram 228 has novelty and design within a similar approach".
