An inscription on the reverse reads, 'Painted in the morning and afternoon of an August day in 1929 at Freiern, Fordingbridge, while I was going to Solent, for the Schneider Cup. TES.' The Schneider Cup was for seaplanes and took place in September 1929. John had made several paintings and drawings of Lawrence at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 and was eager to record his changing features.
