Conder's directly painted little sketches of Swanage can be compared in approach with paintings by his slightly younger contemporaries in Britain, Augustus John and William Nicholson. Conder at the same time was also reviving an unusual genre, painting on fans in an eighteenth-century style. The prettiness and elegance of his fans is echoed in these sketches. Compare the contemporary fascination with rococo decorative art in Wilson Steer's 'Toilet of Venus' on show in this room.
