Garnett, 2000, c3 and c4, p. 291. Nigel Daly has asserted that the present watercolour was acquired by Graham for his nine-year-old daughter ‘Katherine Graham’, an erroneous reference to Graham’s daughter Frances. There is, however, no evidence to support the assertion that Graham had purchased the picture specifically for his daughter. See Daly, 2014, p. 190.1
