With Galerie Kahnweiler, Paris [1]; Léonce Alexandre-Rosenberg, Paris; his sale, Anderson Galleries, New York, May 3, 1918, no. 86; purchased by John Quinn (1870-1924), New York, 1918-1924; his estate, 1924-1926; with Paul Rosenberg & Co., Paris [2]; with Valentine Gallery (Valentine Dudensing), New York, after 1926 [3]; sold to Samuel S.

See Zilczer, The Noble Buyer, 1978, no. 59, p. 130; and Reid, The Man from New York, 1968, p. 653, who notes that Quinn's entire Picasso collection was sold to Paul Rosenberg before the major Quinn estate auctions of 1926 and 1927. 3. The Paul Rosenberg sales records from 1927-1939 are lost; however, Elaine Rosenberg affirms that Paul Rosenberg often dealt with Valentine Dudensing of the Valentine Gallery (per phone conversation, Nov. 4, 2002). Valentine Dudensing established his gallery in New York in 1926, first named the F. Valentine Dudensing Gallery and renamed the Valentine Gallery in 1927. 4. Copy of dated receipt from Valentine Gallery in curatorial file.
