From: Harvard:
Donalson Hoopes, author of "Sargent Watercolors" (1976), visited the Fogg in July of 1965. Hoopes identified the woman on the left as Dorothy Barnard, whom Sargent had painted nearly twenty-five years earlier in Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose (1885-86, Tate Gallery, London). The woman on the right was identified by Hoopes as Rose-Marie Ormond, Sargent's niece.

Lesson," "Simplon Pass: The Tease," "Reading," "Simplon Pass: The Green Parasol," and "Simplon Pass: At the Top" (all 1911, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston).
