1902, Bernheim-Jeune, Paris [see note 1]. By 1910, Eben Dyer Jordan (b. 1857 - d. 1916), Boston [see note 2]; 1916, by descent to his son, Robert Jordan (d. 1932), Paris; 1932, by inheritance to his widow, Mrs. Robert Jordan, Paris; 1937, gift of Mrs. Robert Jordan to the MFA. (Accession Date: October 14, 1937) NOTES:  According to a letter from Charles Cunningham, Assistant Curator of Paintings, MFA, to Robert M. Levy, Jacques Seligmann and Co., Inc., New York (October 19, 1937) in the MFA curatorial file. Cunningham conjectures that the painting may have passed from Bernheim-Jeune to Eben Dyer Jordan, though this cannot be substantiated.  Mr. Dyer lent the painting to the MFA in 1910.
