Title Notes: Title from listing supplied by Stella Downer - see file 76/0143 ff27-31 and associated notes by Rollin Schlicht at ff33-37. The title was allocated by Schlicht and Downer, rather than by the artist, but has been accepted by NGA as the formal title. Date uncertain; Schlicht lists this work as done in the Mediterranean area or the Canary Islands, which could have been over the very broad period 1920 to 1935. (KA 4/2/03)
