Gold and Orange: The Neighbours

Gold and Orange: The Neighbours probably dates from between 1895 and 1901, but could possibly have been worked on later. 1

It is dated from the technique, subject and composition. It was first exhibited in 1901 but in 1903, shortly before it was sold, Whistler still thought it required 'more touches.' 2
