"The Potter paintings .. were intimate and biographical. They are poetic evocations of the early life of Merric and Doris Boyd, the artist's parents.  Both had died: Merric in 1959, shortly before Arthur and his family left Melbourne, Doris a year later.  Their deaths and the dissolution of the home at Murrembeena prompted works of a more private nature than any undertaken since the forties."  The Art of Arthur Boyd, Ursula Hoff, Andre Deutsch, London, 1986,  page 60    This drawing is similar to Potter Holding Plaster Head, plate 133
