General notes

Titled according to information probably supplied by the artist for her exhibition at the home of Mrs Joan Williams in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, 1974.

This may be a scene painted near Bry-sur-Marne where Boris and Christiane Kalachnikoff built a house after their marriage in 1953, or possibly Ste-Geneviève-des-Bois where Kalachnikoff’s parents had a country house.
