Note in Gold and Blue: France


Only one title is known, with minor changes in punctuation:

  • 'Note in gold and blue – France' (1886, Dowdeswell). 1
  • 'Note in Gold and Blue: France' (1980, YMSM).

'Note in Gold and Blue: France' is the preferred form of the title.


Unknown. The title suggests a beach scene.


Unknown. It is just possible that it was the same painting shown in the Exposition Internationale de Peinture et de Sculpture, Galerie Georges Petit, Paris, 1887 (cat. no. 193) as 'Bleu et or: Honfleur' (but see Bleu et or: Honfleur [YMSM 361]).
