Charles Butler (b. 1822 - d. 1910), London [see note 1]; about 1904/1906, possibly sold by Butler to Agnew's, London (stock no. 1143) [see note 2]; 1906, sold by Agnew's to Alexandre Imbert. 1915, Bacri Frères, Paris; 1915, sold by Bacri to the MFA for $3699. (Accession Date: July 15, 1915) NOTES:  This cassone panel was first seen by Walter Gay in 1915, when it was with Bacri in Paris. In a letter to the MFA (May 7, 1915) Gay states that it is "undoubtedly by Paolo Uccello...It is from the Butler collection, London -- the latter had a sale in March 1911, though this picture did not figure in _that_ catalogue, being bought at another time."  Possibly the picture sold by Butler to Agnew's that was described as "Italian primitive, cassone front, a battle, 20 x 52."
