Herkunft: (Paul Guillaume); sold April 1928 to Chester Dale [1883-1962], New York; bequest 1963 to NGA.
 The Dale collection inventory indicates that this sculpture was included in the Hôtel Drouot, Paris, sale of 15 June 1927 (Chester Dale Papers, Archives of American Art, box 2, folder 27; copy in NGA curatorial files), possibly purchased by Guillaume. However, according to an undated memo by former NGA curator David Rust (copy in NGA curatorial files), the sculpture reproduced in the 1927 sale catalogue is not this work. After examining the reproduction of the only Modigliani head in the Drouot catalogue (no. 67, _Tête de femme_), Shelley Sturman, NGA head of object conservation, confirmed that it is not 1963.10.241, the head donated by Dale (see emails of 17 and 19 April, 2022, in NGA curatorial files).
