A most charming and well executed painting of Cecilia Green posing in front of one of the many beautiful buildings in this picturesque small village of Sospel on the French/Italian border north east of Nice. Sir William spent some time here and a limited edition was published, titled 'The Little Sewing Girl, Sospel'.

The small town of Sospel located on the south of France holds a military and historic background originally helping serve as an important staging post on the royal road. Today its most iconic
note would be the large cathedral located in the centre along with historical landmark such as ruins of the old chateu and a very old toll bridge.
