Rebecca John has dated the present drawing to c. 1900-05, and believes it was drawn either in Paris or Marseilles. She writes, 'The draughtsmanship tells me it was drawn in the 1900s (up to 1WW) when he would draw the face in lovely detail and the rest in wonderful bold lines, adding scribbles and shading at great speed. His best period.'
