Catalogue entry

Made with the page turned horizontally, this very slight note of a figure (Finberg recorded the page as ‘Blank’) is on a scale small in relation to the page size so that it has the appearance of being situated in a large space, perhaps the beach at Margate where the scenes on adjacent pages are apparently set.
