The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Blanca Pons Sorolla, who will be including it in the forthcoming Sorolla catalogue raisonné (BPS 1669).

Painted in Asturias circa 1902-04, the present work depicts carboneras, women who worked unloading coal barges, and can be compared with another contemporary study of the same dimensions in the Museo Sorolla, Madrid (inv. no. 457).
