Picture notes Title from B and W image in the CSA exhibition catalogue p351. Given to DPAG by John L McIndoe 1973 NZ Herald 25 May 1914, p9 "An exceedingly promising portrait painter is Mabel Hill. Her sketch of an old man "In the Studio" (197) is very successful. She retains the lighting on the model's face very finely, and her treatment is sympathetic."
