The paintings include Nocturne: Grey and Gold - Westminster Bridge [YMSM 145] at the top of the sheet, and just possibly Nocturne: Blue and Gold - St Mark's, Venice [YMSM 213] at the bottom (if Whistler was being very inaccurate!).

The Nocturne in the centre could possibly have been Nocturne [YMSM 153], shown in VI. Internationale Kunst-Ausstellung, Königlicher Glaspalast, Munich, 1892, or Nocturne: Blue and Silver - Battersea Reach [YMSM 152], which, like the other two paintings, was shown in Nocturnes, Marines & Chevalet Pieces, Goupil Gallery, London, 1892.
