Inscription

Lower left: Frits Thaulow 94

Provenance

Probably Horatio Appleton Lamb (b. 1850 - d. 1926), Boston [see note 1]; probably by descent to his daughters, Aimée Lamb (b. 1893 - d. 1989) and Rosamond Lamb (b. 1898 - d. 1989), Boston; 1978, gift of Misses Aimée and Rosamond Lamb to the MFA. (Accession Date: January 10, 1979) NOTES: [1] Horatio Appleton Lamb was a Boston collector who left many works of art to his daughters, Aimée and Rosamond Lamb. While it has not been established when or how he acquired this painting, he purchased a pastel by Thaulow in Paris in 1891 (MFA accession no. 1972.980), and he may have acquired this around the same time.
