The technique and style are unusual and difficult to date. The fascination with colour and texture is akin to that seen in Low Tide [YMSM 280]. It is possible it was painted in St Ives in 1884, or on the continent later, as late as the 1890s (the frame appears to date from ca 1892).

Notes:

1: 'Possibly painted in the early 1880s' according to YMSM 1980 [more] (cat. no. 281).
