M. Fabiani (probably the Paris dealer Martin Fabiani), by 1950; sold to Alex Reid & Lefèvre (dealer), London, March 6, 1950 [1]; sold to Samuel S. White, 3rd (1876-1952), Ardmore, PA, April 10, 1951; bequest of Vera White (Mrs. Samuel S. White, 3rd) to PMA, 1967. 1. A March 2002 letter from Lorna Carberry of Reid & Lefèvre (in curatorial file) states that the painting was purchased by them from Mr. M. Fabiani on this date, and sold to Samuel S. White in 1951; and confirms that the painting was included in the exhibition "French 20th Century Masters" at Reid & Lefèvre in November 1949. The dealer Martin Fabiani was a friend and protégé of Ambroise Vollard, with whom he worked for years and who named him an executor of his estate, a large part of which Fabiani acquired after Vollard's death in 1939. Utrillo may have known Fabiani personally: he painted a view of Fabiani's Paris store-front in 1943, "La Galerie Martin Fabiani à Paris" (Pétridès no. 2182, "coll. Martin Fabiani, Paris"). According to Fabiani's autobiography, he became friends with Utrillo's dealer Paul Pétridès in 1939 (see Quand j'étais marchand de tableaux, Paris, 1976, p. 172). Fabiani's name appears on Nazi-era provenance red flag lists because of some of his wartime dealings.
