tempera on panel, transferred to composition board
79.4 x 70.3 cm (31-1/4 x 27-5/8 in)
Miss Frances Anne Hardinge [1819–1891], England; [1] Count Mario Tadini Buoninsegni [b. 1889], Siena. [2] (Count Alessandro Contini Bonacossi [1878-1955] Rome-Florence); sold to Samuel H. Kress [1863-1955] on 1 June 1936; gift 1939 to the National Gallery of Art; deaccessioned in 1952 and returned to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation; gift 1961 to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, no. F61-58. [1] A printed coat of arms that was formerly attached to the back of the panel, now preserved in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art registrar’s files, was kindly identified as that of Miss Hardinge by Mrs. Angela Howard, Heirloom & Howard, Ltd., Chippenham, Wiltshire, letter of March 19, 1994. According to Mrs. Howard’s reading, the accompanying inscription reads "Frances…/Hamilton G… from Aunt M." [2] On the Buoninsegni and Tadini family see V. Spreti, Enciclopedia storico-nobiliare italiana, Bologna, 1932, vol. VI, pp. 527–28. The last private owner of the present panel would appear to have been Mario Tadini Buoninsegni.
