Undated, but possibly 1890, when the Swynnertons were staying at Carrara in north-west Italy.

Swynnerton, the sculptor, and Mrs. Swynnerton, the distinguished painter, to spend a few weeks with them at a villa near Carrara … While with our friends the Swynnertons we made an expedition to the summit of Moune Sagra, the highest peak of the Carrara range.

Walter Crane (1907) An Artist’s Reminiscences.
