(Accession Date: September 8, 1927) NOTES: [1] This information comes from a letter from Lelia Wittler of Knoedler to Charles C. Cunningham of the MFA (February 3, 1940; in MFA curatorial file). [2] It is not known how or when Miss Bartol acquired this painting. In a letter from her cousin, John W. Bartol, to Charles C. Cunningham of the MFA (May 2, 1940) she is said to have acquired her collection of paintings "partly by inheritance and partly by purchase" and that there was no paperwork documenting these transactions.
