A Etatis. 56. / A. 1619
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:  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.  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.
