Not inscribed.
Pen and ink and watercolour, 12 3/4×8 (32·5×20).
Presented by the Contemporary Art Society 1941.

Another, smaller drawing of the Alhambra belonged in 1958 to Mrs Ceinwen Thomas. Fothergill, 1946, pl.33, reproduces a painting ‘At the Theatre’ c. 1912, and the studies of the Alhambra (a well-known London music hall on the site now occupied by the Odeon Cinema, Leicester Square) may date from about the same time.
