The painting is on display at the Art Institute of Chicago under the title of  "A Study from Life." Under the title "Egyptian Girl," this tall oil painting displayed at both the New English Art Club exhibition of 1891 and at the World Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago. It also holds distinction as the only known oil nude of a female that Sargent ever presented. ~ J.M. Pressley
