This watercolour was a gift from Oskar Kokoschka to Martha Hirsch, a very good friend. Kokoschka had already portrayed Hirsch several times, most famously in an Expressionist portrait from 1909, now privately owned. During World War II, Martha Hirsch and her husband fled to Australia, where they finally settled. However, the artist and the Hirschs maintained contact during their entire lifetime, as witnessed by Kokoschka’s dedication on the present work.
