commentary

Jeptha H. Wade II (1857–1926) first worked in the telegraph business before serving as an executive in numerous fields including railways, banking, manufacturing, and mining. One of the incorporators of the Cleveland Museum of Art in 1913, he became its president in 1920. The date that Wade purchased After the Bath from Durand-Ruel is not known, but it was likely not long after the gallery obtained the work from the artist because the picture did not appear in any exhibitions until it entered the museum collection in 1920.
