Kuarke, the woman portrayed in this painting, was one of a group of six men and women from the Ituri forest in present-day Democratic Republic of Congo, who were persuaded to come to Britain by big-game hunter Colonel Harrison, and toured the country from 1905 to 1907. The group arrived in June 1905 and first appeared on stage at the London Hippodrome.
