Inglis, New York; April 6, 1885, sold at Inglis sale, Leonard & Co., Boston, no. 65, and bought by Henry Clay Angell, Boston (d. 1911) [see note 1]; 1911, at Angell's death, to his widow, Martha Bartlett Angell, Boston (d. 1919); 1919, gift of Angell. (Accession date: March 20, 1919) NOTES: [1] there is some dispute over whether Angell purchased the picture from Thomas B. Inglis as listed above (through an intermediary, Green) or from James S.
