The Samuel S. White 3rd and Vera White Collection, 1967
With Paul Rosenberg & Co., Paris; sold to Samuel S. White, 3rd (1876-1952), Ardmore, PA, probably late 1930s ; bequest of Vera White (Mrs. Samuel S. White, 3rd) to PMA, 1967.
1. Rosenberg was Braque's dealer from 1923 onward. See letter in curatorial file from Elaine Rosenberg (Paul Rosenberg & Co.) dated February 14, 2002, which states that the painting was most likely sold to S. S. White in Paris, presumably meaning before Rosenberg fled Paris in 1940. See also Henry G. Gardiner, White Collection catalog, PMA Bulletin, v. 63, nos. 296-297, January-March 1968 and April-June 1968, no. 6, p. 79.* Works in the collection are moved off view for many different reasons.
