Inscription

A Etatis. 56. / A. 1619

Provenance

Daniel Sargent Curtis (b. 1825 - d. 1908), Boston and Venice [see note 1]; probably from Curtis to Frederic Porter Vinton (b. 1846 - d. 1911), Boston [see note 2]; 1911, Annie Pierce (Mrs. Frederic Porter) Vinton (b. 1855 - d. 1929), Boston; 1929, bequeathed by Mrs. Annie P. Vinton to the MFA. (Accession Date: June 6, 1929) NOTES: [1] According to a letter from Mrs. Vinton to Keith MacLeod (1927; in the MFA curatorial files). Mrs. Vinton first lent the painting to the MFA in 1911. [2] Painter Frederic Porter Vinton almost certainly knew Daniel Sargent Curtis and his son, Ralph Wormeley Curtis (b. 1854 - d. 1922), and probably acquired the painting directly from one of them.
