  • Sequence: Itinerary 11 of 15

    Owner Name: Charles Fairfax Murray

    In possession from: 1886 to 1886

    Location: The Grange, North End, Fulham

    Notes:

    The ownership of the painting between 1859 and 1886 is a bit confusing. Charles Scarisbrick is associated with the painting, but he dies in 1860, and his collection is sold by Christie's in 1861. There is an anonymous sale in 1879, where it appears that C.J. Nieuwenhuys possibly owns the picture until it is sold in 1886 by Nieuwenhuys' executors. The Fitzwilliam catalogue entry does not provide further information.
