Richard mentions this painting in his 1936 diary:2nd Nov: Began painting The Pilot Boat (16x20) for show at French Gallery
In his sales diary Richard records it was sold from the Goupil Gallery in early 1937. This apparent contradiction is probably explained by the fact that The French Gallery and the Goupil Gallery shared premises in the mid to late 1930s.
The sketch below includes a stern view of a coble fishing boat which almost matches the boat in 'Pilot Boat'. The sketch however is dated 1940, over six years after the painting was done. Another thing to scratch our heads about.
