T01645 Femme au Lorgnon (Woman with an Eye-Glass) c.1902-3

Not inscribed
Black ink and watercolour on thin, off-white card, 12 5/8 x 9 5/8 (32 x 24.3)
Presented by Roberta González 1972
Repr: Vicente Aguilera Cerni, Julio Joan Roberta González: Itinerario de una Dinastía (Barcelona 1973), pl.24 in colour (dated c.1902-6) Ronald Alley, The González Gift to the Tate Gallery (London 1974), p.8

This somewhat resembles several pen and ink drawings of figures dated 1902, but is more freely executed and therefore perhaps slightly later. A dating of 1902-3 for this, T01658, T01673 and T01665 has been confirmed from the costumes by Mrs Madeleine B. Ginsburg.
