W. Baron, Sickert: Paintings and Drawings, New Haven and London, 2006, p. 157, no. 30, illustrated.
Note: 'This low-toned, fluid sketch of the cliffs of Le Pollet on the far side of Dieppe Harbour and the row of villas where Georges Jean-Marie Haquette (1854-1906), painter of coastal scenes and fisherfolk, had a studio, was probably painted in the mid-1880s.' W. Baron, p. 157
A fine early example showing Sickert's debt to his master Whistler.
