Only one title is known:
The title means 'Nasturtium and rose'.
Unknown. The title 'Nasturtium and rose' indicates either flowers (flowering plants of the genus Tropaeolum) or colours: nasturtiums can range from yellow and orange to red, and roses from white and yellow to red and purple. It is possible that this was a figure study, or that these colours provided a point of focus in a street scene.
For instance in the watercolour Flower market: Dieppe [M.1026], the artist focussed on vivid orange and red flowers.
If, as is suggested, Capucine et rose was actually the watercolour known as Flower market: Dieppe [M.1026], then it was painted in the port of Dieppe on the French coast.
No model has been identified, and it is not certain that this was a figure study.
