This study for 'Self Portrait - The Blue Shirt' probably dates from the late 1940s when Cowie was about sixty years old. His quiet, self-effacing manner is clearly evident - Cowie portrays himself as an observer of life rather than an instigator of events.


Presented in 1977 by Mrs Catherine Fleming.
