Sir Richard Levinge [1911-1984], Knockdrin Castle, Ireland; to (C. Marshall Spink, London), possibly via (Adolf Fritz Mondschein, Vienna, Austria) in 1939. {1} (E. and A. Silberman, New York);{2} Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes [1877-1958], Indianapolis, in 1941;Clowes Fund Collection, Indianapolis, since 1958; on long-term loan to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Courtesy of the Clowes Fund, since 1971 (C10006); given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2014. {1}Spink corresponded with G.H. A. Clowes in 1956-57; informing Clowes that he bought the painting from Sir Richard Levinge, see Clowes Archive, Indianapolis Museum of Art, letters dated 6 April 1956 and 15 February 1957. In the letter, Spink relates that he was recently in contact with Levinge to learn the origin of the painting; Levinge reported that he had no old records. The Friedländer Project of the RKD, Den Haag, contains a photograph of the painting bearing a Friedländer notation on the verso that reads: “Spink London/ d.[urch]Mondschein/VI.39.” It is possible, but not confirmed, that Spink had business connections with Adolf Fritz Mondschein, later known as Frederick Mont after his emigration to the US in 1939, during this period. {2}Abris Silberman congratulates G.H.C. Clowes on his recent purchase of this picture, see IMA Clowes Archive, letter dated 24 February 1941.
