In the catalogue raisonnÈ of Patrick Henry Bruce’s work, William C. Agee and Barbara Rose note: “At first glance, the painting may appear to be [a] self- portrait. However, despite a similar facture and arbitrary color modeling, it is probably a portrait of Arthur B. Frost, Jr. (1887-1917), Bruce’s closest friend during these years.”
