The Sea Coast may have been painted in 1897, possibly on the north-west coast of France.
1883/1884: It was originally dated from a photograph to between 1883 and 1884. 1
1894/1900: The butterfly signature is clearly of a later date, in the 1890s; however, it could have been signed for sale in 1899/1900.
1897: It may have been painted in Étretat, at the same time as Harmony in Blue and Silver: Beaching the Boat, Étretat [YMSM 483]. The pale beige/grey beach would fit with that area.
