Blue and Gold: The Schooner probably dates from late 1883 or early 1884.
It was first exhibited in 'Notes' - 'Harmonies' - 'Nocturnes', Messrs Dowdeswell, London, 1884 (cat. no. 32). However, the butterfly signature was probably added much later.
It is possible that Blue and Gold: The Schooner is an unlocated painting. Green and Gold: The Sloop [YMSM 368].
