This view of Brighton beach may be dated to 1887, the date of two other views of the town by the artist. Another watercolour view of Brighton beach by Lecomte appeared at auction in England in 1992, while a watercolour titled ‘Souvenir de Brighton’ and dated ‘30 Mai 1887’ was sold in New York in 1984. A thematically and stylistically comparable, albeit larger, watercolour of a seaside view, Bord de mer à Grand-Camp, was sold at auction in Paris in 2006.
