Countess Vosdari, Ferrara. [1] (Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955] Rome-Florence); sold to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation on 17 July 1950; gift 1961 to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, no. F61-65. [1] There appear to be no records of a Countess Vosdari or her collection in Ferrara. Possibly, this collector was instead a member of the noble Bosdari family, which can be traced to the cities of Ragusa, Ancona, and Bologna. See Lucio Scardino, Liberty House Casa Editrice, Ferrara, letter of October 14, 1993, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art curatorial files.
