Notes

  1. Madame Arthur Warocqué and Raoul Warocqué are listed as lending The Four Seasons, along with two other Stevens pictures, to the Exposition de l'oeuvre d'Alfred Stevens, held from February 6-27, 1900, in Paris, organized by Peintres français. It is unclear whether she partially owned The Four Seasons, or whether she lent one or both of the other pictures to the exhibition. The J. Allard invoice prepared for Clark does not include Madame Warocqué as an owner, but this may be an oversight.
