Grey and Silver

Description

The Echo on 2 December 1885 described it as one of two 'seaside' sketches, but the Academy on 19 December 1885 described it as a vertical pastel of a lightly draped model. The minimal title appears more appropriate for a seascape but perhaps the scantily dressed model was walking by the sea.
