McEvoy was a highly successful portrait painter, mainly of women and often in watercolour. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London with Augustus John and William Orpen when he was only fifteen. He also studied with Whistler. He later worked with Walter Sickert in Dieppe. This is an early drawing by him, beautifully drawn and unusually tight in execution. He is represented in many public collections including the National Portrait Gallery and the Tate Gallery.
