The Carrara paintings

The painting is signed and dated 1913, however other scholars have attributed the work as early in 1911 when John did a number of paintings at Carrara. Possibly this was dated and signed much later by Sargent and possibly dated incorrectly -- or did he make a quick stop at Carrara and revisited a former subject? -- I don't know.
