Literature: Lillian Brownse, Forain the Painter, London 1978, pp. 51,83,114 ill. V111 ‘...The quality of this painting is so fine that it could hang, not unhappily, next to a Frans Hals or a Daumier. Low-toned and generally monochromatic but for a few breaks into muted colour and a lovely use of whites and flesh tints, it is rich in its blacks and splendid in the handling of the shadows wich emphasise the drawing.’
