Probably from the artist to (Ambroise Vollard, Paris, France).{1} To Henri Bernstein [1876-1953] by 1910;{2} (Sale, Hotel Drouot, Paris, 1911);{3} Auguste Pellerin [1852-1929].{4} Probably via (Ambroise Vollard, Paris) and (Paul Cassirer, Berlin, Germany) to Gottlieb Friedrich Reber [1880-1959] by 1918;{5} sold to (Marie Harriman, New York, New York) by 1936;{6} purchased by Caroline Marmon Fesler, Indianapolis, Indiana; given to the John Herron Art Institute, now the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, in 1945. {7} {1} See John Rewald, The Paintings of Paul Cézanne: A Catalogue Raisonné, volume 1, 1996, no. 573 cites the Vollard stocknumber 3879[A]. {2} See Galerie Bernheim-Jeune, Paris, Exposition Cézanne, 10-22 January 1910, no. 7, listing the owner as "H. Bernstein." {3} See auction catalogue, Hotel Drouot, Paris, 7 June 1911, no. 9 (illustration); {4} An annotated copy of the auction catalogue at the Frick Art Reference Library gives the purchaser as "Pellerin." {5} A label with the Vollard stocknumber 5155 appears on the painting's stretcher. On Reber's ownership, see Peter Kropmanns and Uwe Fleckner, "Von Kontinentaler Bedeutung: Gottlieb Friedrich Reber und seine Sammlung," in Andrea Pophanken and Felix Billeter, eds., Die Moderne und ihre Sammler, Berlin 2001, p. 352. A photo of the interior of Reber's apartment, dated to 1918, shows this painting hanging on the wall. {6} Reber established connections with Harriman beginning in 1931 when she acquired Rousseau's Rendezvous in the Forest, NGA, from him. Based on the stocknumbers of several works that followed this path into the NGA's collection, IMA's painting was acquired by Harriman closer to 1936; information courtesy of Nancy Yeide, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. {7} IMA Temporary Receipt No. 4689.
