“ In this watercolour of the 1870s a Tissot-esque beauty poses in an elegant black outfit lined with fur against a wintry backdrop, a splash of red at her breast. The setting may be Westhorpe Water, a series of lakes fed by the Thames, close by Gregory's home in Great Marlow, during one of the notably cold winters of the late 1870s.” — Rupert Maas
