A figure composition featuring a seated figure with a bird cage on a stool and a table

This painting was painted during the artist's final year at Gray's School of Art, when Gillies was trying to move away from painting directly from life, as she wanted to focus on using her imagination.

Gillies loved Bonnard's paintings and inspired by him, she used a (self-portrait) half-figure in this composition.
