In the Memorial exhibition at the Fine Art Society in October 1937 several paintings of sand dunes and other views at Trépied, Camiers and Equihen were included. The artist's son Blair Hughes-Stanton wrote (14 April 1958) that he still owned about a dozen of these and that his father worked every year from 1906 to 1914 in France, either in the Avignon or the Pas de Calais areas, and his work was much admired in France. He did not think that he owned the actual sketch for the ‘Pasturage’ as his father's work was selling very well at the time.
