Private collection, Chateau d'Arbus, near Pau, France [see note 1]. Art market, France (?) [see note 2]. Possibly with Neumeister, Munich; possibly sold by Neumeister to the Hofgalerie, Vienna; 1967, sold by the Hofgalerie to the MFA. (Accession Date: September 13, 1967) NOTES:  According to a letter from Wolfgang Hofstätter, Hofgalerie, to Hanns Swarzenski of the MFA (December 18, 1967).  Notes in the curatorial file (October, 1982) indicate that Hanns Swarzenski recalled that the Hofgalerie had acquired this sculpture from Neumeister, Munich; before then it had been with an unknown French dealer. This has not been verified. Wolfgang Hofstätter first mentioned the sculpture in correspondence to the MFA on October 7, 1966.
