Remarks
The nude female figure study on this sheet relates to a nude female that appears in a pair of oil paintings from about this period (figs. 1, 2). The sketch of a fireplace in the same vignette on this sheet appears in another oil painting (fig. 3), and the drawing of a still life on a table appears to have been the model for yet another oil painting (fig. 4).
