This self-portrait was probably one of a student portfolio of six water-colours submitted for exhibition at the Royal College of Art, December 1930. The other contents of this portfolio, representing work with the Royal College of Art holiday sketching club the previous summer, are lost. Tantalisingly, one was entitled The Miracle. In the oils section Dunbar included The Onion Bed, also lost, presumably originating from The Cedars vegetable garden.
