The first owner of this picture was the French operatic baritone and composer Jean-Baptiste Faure (1830-1914). Along with being a celebrate figure in the world of classical music, Faure was also a key member of the Impressionist circle, posed for numerous paintings by Manet and at one point was the owner of Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe. Along with that legendary composition and the present work, Faure's collection included over 120 canvases by Manet and Monet. Upon Faure's death at the beginning of World War I, this picture was inherited by his son Maurice's wife, Mme Faure. By the 1920s the picture had come into the possession of Carroll Carstairs who sold it through Knoedler Gallery to the present owners.
