Lower left: Daubigny 1876
About 1885 or before, with Goupil et Cie., Paris [see note 1]. 1885, Galerie Georges Petit, Paris; September 1885, sold by Georges Petit to M. Knoedler and Co., New York (stock no. 4919); April 1886, sold by Knoedler to J. Eastman Chase Gallery, Boston [see note 2], for Clara Bertram Kimball, Boston; by inheritance to her husband, David P. Kimball (d. 1923), Boston; 1923, bequest of Mrs. David P. Kimball to the MFA. (Accession Date: September 6, 1923) NOTES:  On the reverse of the painting is a label identified as that of Goupil (stock no. 16355).  This information comes from a letter from Lelia Wittler of Knoedler and Co. to Charles C. Cunningham of the MFA (March 6, 1941; in MFA curatorial file). On the reverse of the painting, in pencil, is a number identified by Charles C. Cunningham as possibly the mark of Samuel Putnam Avery (b. 1822 - d. 1904), a New York art dealer. It is not known for certain whether his gallery is associated with this stock number, or whether it played a role in the importation and sale of this painting. Another mark on the reverse is tentatively identified as coming from Vose Galleries, Boston, but this has not been verified.
