About artist/note:

"Kathleen Varley had approached Varley to draw her husband, Donald, but Varley seldom made drawings to order, unless the subject moved him. However, a strong affinity developed between Varley and Kathy, and he did many drawings and one large canvas of her." Peter Varley, Frederick H. Varley, Key Porter Books, Toronto, 1983, page 190.
