1952-61-30A. E. Gallatin Collection, 1952
A. E. Gallatin, New York, acquired by February 1935 (possibly summer 1934), probably from a Paris gallery ; bequest to PMA, 1952.
1. Gail Stavitsky suggests that Gallatin may have purchased it from Galerie Jeanne Bucher, Galerie Pierre, or Galerie Pierre Colle (see The Development, Institutionalization, and Impact of the A.E. Gallatin Collection of Modern Art, [Ph.D. dissertation, New York University], 1990, v. 7, p. 89, and v. 1, p. 263).|
