[1] This painting was not included in the Vever sale in Paris of 1-2 February 1897, which included 14 other paintings by Corot. It is unclear if Vever bought it at the 1917 auction, as his Acquisitions Book (in the Henri Vever papers, Freer-Sackler Gallery Archives, Smithsonian Institution, Washington) ends in July 1917. [2] According to the exhibition catalogues, the painting was lent in 1989 to The Lefevre Gallery in London by a private collection in the United Kingdom, in 1991 to a touring exhibition in Manchester and Norwich by a private collection in Switzerland, and in 1996 to a touring exhibition in Washington, Brooklyn, and St. Louis by a private collection in Japan.
