Inscr. ‘G. Havard Thomas 1930’ t.l. of base.
Bianco del mare, 34 3/4×10 3/4×9 1/2 (88×27·5×24).
Purchased from the artist's widow (Grant-in-Aid) 1934.

The artist's widow has recalled that the work was probably begun about 1928; the inscribed date of 1930 must therefore denote the date of completion (letter of 14 February 1958).
