Whistler made a pen drawing of the oil painting, Sketch of 'Harmony in Blue and Gold' [M.1095], in 1886, which was published in the Pall Mall Gazette.
Although the pen drawing is the only certain record of the oil, a watercolour, A nude girl with a parasol [M.1094], with a colour scheme of blue and gold, may be related to it.
Unknown, although it was described by the Art Journal as 'worthy to rank among his greater productions, and presents qualities of handling, and beauties of delicate colour and of subtle tone relation, such as are marvellous.' 1
