(Arnold Seligmann, Paris). Kobler. [1] (Paul Drey, New York); sold to Samuel H. Kress [1863-1955] in 1948; gift to the Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in 1962, n. U-357-K. [1] According to Paul Drey. This may refer to New York publisher Albert J. Kobler [1876-1936] who had an art collection including French and Flemish primitives, and acquired works from the Seligmann firm. After his death his collection was inherited by his wife, née Mignon Sommers [died c. 1946] and subsequently by his sons John and Justin Kobler, who sold at least some of the collection to Duveen in 1947. There is no evidence of a transaction between Seligmann and Kobler regarding this painting in the Seligmann papers at the Archives of American Art.
