Catalogue Note

One of the early owners of the present lot was Mrs. Thomas Scott (née Annie Riddle), the wife of the president of the Pennsylvania Railroad and cousin of Mary Cassatt. A Pennsylvania native, Mrs. Scott expatriated to Paris in the 1880s, and it was there that she became part of Cassatt's inner circle and began building her art collection, which included an Édouard Manet, Jeune fille en déshabillé, that was later lent to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
