Lower right: J C. CAZIN

Provenance

1894, Galerie Georges Petit, Paris, France [see note 1]; September, 1894, sold by Georges Petit to Knoedler, London (stock no. 987) [see note 2]; October, 1894, sold by Knoedler to William R. Wilson, Boston; 1915, gift of William R. Wilson to the MFA. (Accession Date: June 3, 1915) NOTES: [1] George Petit was probably an agent for Cazin so it is likely that the gallery acquired this directly from the artist (information supplied by Getty Provenance Index). [2] Information on the Knoedler transactions is taken from a letter from Lelia Wittler, Knoedler, New York, to the MFA (February 3, 1940).
