Notes: This work is titled Landscape at Collioure at the UNT Digital Library (The UNT College of Visual Arts and Design). If indeed the scene represents Collioure, there are few, if any, recognizable features in the landscape that would confirm such a location. Notably missing is the Château Royal de Collioure.
