    Unclear numerals following East’s signature in the present work, suggest that it was painted in 1882 or 1883, perhaps as a preparation for East’s lochside landscape, The Haunt of the Heron, 1884 (unlocated). The larger, closely related Sunrise on Loch Lomond, Scotland (sold in these rooms on 23 March 2016, lot 57), shares a similar palette to the present work and is likely to have been painted at the same time.
