The labels affixed to this work provide a history of where the painting was displayed. The red starburst label indicates that this painting was available for purchase at the American Art Galleries at Madison Square South, New York, as part of the sale of the William M. Laffan Collection on January 20, 1911. The auction catalogue for that sale specifies that the painting, then misidentified as a Spanish Saint Dorothea, was purchased by Robert S. Minturn for $800. Later, it turned up in the collection of Robert B. Minturn. The three labels--at top center, bottom left and bottom right–- attached to both the frame and the panel reveal that this painting was exhibited at the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, where it was lent by Robert B. Minturn, Francis M. Sedgwick’s uncle, in 1934.
