Lower right: Ensor 1923
Private collection, Paris; sold from private collection to the Swetzoff Gallery, Boston [see note 1]; June 22, 1959, sold by Swetzoff to G. Peabody Gardner, Boston; 1960, gift of G. Peabody Gardner to the MFA. (Accession Date: February 11, 1960) NOTES:  In a letter to Thomas Maythan of the MFA (June 29, 1960), Hyman Swetzoff wrote that the painting was purchased from a private collection in Paris; in a letter to Angelica Rudenstine of the MFA (May 3, 1963), he wrote that he was unable to reveal the name of the seller. The painting may also have been in Switzerland and Germany, as the reverse of the panel bears export stamps from those countries.
Gift of G. Peabody Gardner
