Notes

  1. According to the Durand-Ruel archives, their New York branch bought this painting from Galerie Brame on June 1, 1933, later, that is, than the date Durand-Ruel New York sold it to Clark. The painting was, however, deposited with the New York branch by the Paris branch on  May 8, possibly on behalf of Galerie Brame, though the records are unclear on this point.
