This is clearly a fairly late work. It may be the very small picture of this title in the Leicester Galleries exhibition (2), though there is no record of this having been sold during the exhibition, or perhaps 'The Road to Nedjma-Ezzohra' (25), which was bought by Lord Duveen. (Oliver Brown in letter, 7 November 1956).
