Please use the guide to read Gallery provenance texts:

  • Provenance is listed in chronological order, beginning with the earliest known owner.
  • Dealers, auction houses or agents appear in parentheses.
  • Relationships between owners and methods of transactions are indicated by punctuation: a semicolon is used to indicate that the work passed directly between two owners (including dealers, auction houses, or agents), and a period is used to separate two owners (including dealers auction houses or agents) if a direct transfer did not occur or is not known to have occurred.
  • Footnotes are used to document or clarify where critical gaps in provenance exist.
