- "Three young women, dressed alike in clinging dresses and straw bonnets trimmed with ribbons, are distressed by a high wind. Their dresses are above the ankle, and differ from those in No. 11594 in having long tight sleeves, and longer waists. Two hold open ribbon-trimmed parasols, the third holds a handkerchief to her face. They have a small dog shaved in the French manner."--British Museum online catalogue.
