Violet and Blue: Among the Rollers was probably painted in Brittany in September 1893.
In October 1893 Whistler sent 'Violet and Blue – among the Rollers' to the art dealer David Croal Thomson (1855-1930). 1 On 11 December at Whistler's request, Goupil's wrote to the St James's Gazette asserting that the 'sea-piece' had been 'painted in Brittany a few weeks ago.' 2
