This work was gifed to the Ben Uri Collection under the title 'A Gypsy', although this seems to be a misnomer, given that it differs from Kramer's many portraits of his sister Sarah dressed in the gypsy attire made fashionable by Augustus John. Instead, the work is closer to other portraits of women executed in the late 1930s, including 'Portrait of Peggy', c. 1937, in which the sitter (although clearly a different model) wears a similar v-necked red dress.
