Mackay [1874-1938], Roslyn, New York by 1925; [1] (Jacques Seligmann & Cie., New York); purchased 1948, probably through (French & Co., New York),[2] by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New York; gift 1961 to NGA. [1] Published by Valentiner in 1925 and 1926 as in the Mackay collection and as having come from the Rothschild collection.
