Remarks verso a fragment of a pencil sketch of a woman feeding a baby. It seems as though the year 1892 has been written down in de the dating of this drawing. However, the correspondence between Henri Goovaerts and his teachers at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam shows that Goovaerts was in Florence in June 1892. In June 1891 he was in Rome (reference: the archive of the Rijksakademie Amsterdam, Rijksarchief voor Noord-Holland (Haarlem), file 239).
