commentary

Counterproofs after this work exist.

Dealer and collector Edouard Jonas (1883–1961) served as the executor of the estate of Lucien Vollard (Ambroise Vollard's brother) and was also the first director of the Musée Conacq-Jay in Paris.

The Slatkins owned Charles E. Slatkin Inc. Galleries in New York City during the 1950s and 1960s; this pastel was part of their private collection.
