Bixby, St. Louis, Missouri;[1] sold 8 May 1918 to (M. Knoedler & Co., New York); purchased April 1918[2] by Andrew W. Mellon, Pittsburgh; deeded to The A.W. Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust, Pittsburgh; gift 1937 to NGA. [1] Bixby lent the painting to a 1911 exhibition at the City Art Museum in St. Louis. [2] The foregoing information was kindly supplied by M. Knoedler & Co., New York, from its stock books. The discrepancy between Bixby's sale of the picture to Knoedler's on 8 May 1918 and Mellon's purchase of it in April is presumably to be explained by Mellon's prior knowledge of the intended consignment.
