Lower left: Venise 95. / E. Boudin
Until 1898, with the artist (b. 1824 - d. 1898) ; March 20, 1899, Boudin estate sale, Tual, Paris. By 1924, Robert J. Edwards (d. 1924), Boston, MA; 1925, bequest of Robert J. Edwards to the MFA. [see note 1] (Accession Date: April 2, 1925) NOTES:  Siblings Robert (d. 1924), Hannah (d. 1929), and Grace (d. 1938) Edwards were each collectors of art, who seemed to have had joint ownership of the objects in their possession. When Robert died, he bequeathed his collection to the MFA in memory of their mother, Juliana Cheney Edwards. In 1925, after his death, part of his collection was acquired by the Museum, and the remainder went to his sisters, with the understanding that the objects would ultimately be left to the MFA in the collection begun in memory of their mother. The collections of Hannah and Grace were left to the MFA in 1939, following Grace's death. It is not always possible to determine exactly which paintings each sibling had owned.
