As with The Obelisk, near Arques-la-Bataille (TGA 8120/3/53), this study was most probably completed during the summer of 1913, when Sickert began drawing and painting the countryside for the first time since 1908 (see Matthew Sturgis, Walter Sickert: A Life, London 2005, p.444). Wendy Baron notes that it is similar to The Entrance to the Château (private collection); see Wendy Baron, Sickert: Paintings and Drawings, New Haven and London 2006, no.435.2.
