This work is a study for the painting Le Cap Nègre, Le Baie de Pramousquier, 1906, which formerly belonged in the collection of esteemed painted Théo Van Rysselberghe. The study depicts a characteristic subject from Cross's later years, Le Cap Nègre situated on the coast of the Midi, between Toulon and St Tropez. Two miles from the artist's home in St Clair, Le Cap Nègre represents a freedom and ebullience, complimented by regular Taches, which are quintessential to the artist's painterly technique. The present work was first in the collection of Jean Bouin-Luce, the esteemed art historian and author of the Maximilien Luce catalogue raisonné. 

'Harmony implies sacrifices. We always proceed from an impression of nature. Well, relative to nature one cannot put everything on a canvas, and it isn't so much that one can't put everything, but that one can put only very little. These few things become everything - the work of the man'
(Cross to Van Rysselberghe, quoted in John Rewald, Post-Impressionism from Van Gogh to Gauguin, New York, 1962, p. 130)
