In the summer of 1908 Kelly made a number of oil sketches at Etretat in Normandy, which he visited for a week. He aimed to become a portrait painter, and was already sending portraits to the annual Paris Salons. The people he hoped would offer him commissions belonged to fashionable society, and Kelly was anxious to be seen at places on the social circuit such as Etretat.
