(Count Alessandro Contini-Bonacossi, Rome); purchased July 1930 by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New York; [1] gift 1960 to NGA. [1] The bill of sale for the purchase of this sculpture and two others in the same group, NGA 1960.5.11 and .13 (along with twenty paintings) is dated 16 July 1930; payment was made in three installments through November 1930 (copy in NGA curatorial files). Ulrich Middeldorf's entry that includes the sculpture contains an error: the year of the Kress Foundation's acquisition is incorrectly given as 1954 (Sculptures from the Samuel H. Kress Collection: European Schools XIV-XIX Century, London, 1976: 12).
