If Nocturne in Blue and Gold: Valparaiso Bay (YMSM 76) was lent to the 3rd Esposizione Internazionale d'Arte della Città di Venezia,Venice, 1899, it is not in the catalogue. It had recently been shown in the Exhibition of International Art, International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers, London, 1898. Instead, another Valparaiso subject, Crepuscule in Flesh Colour and Green: Valparaiso (YMSM 73), was sent to Venice.
