The lady sitting on the beach reading is Amaryllis Robichaud who was a friend of both Conder and Toulouse Lautrec. She owned this painting. This captures the beauty and elegance for which she was famed and with its flowing lines and delicate colours, is typical of the wistful qualities of Conder’s best work.
