This implies that the drawing was one of the works James purchased under contract from the artist between June 1, 1937, and June 1, 1938, and that James loaned the work to Levy for his exhibition]; transferred to the Edward James Foundation, West Dean Estate, 1964; sold through The Mayor Gallery, London, to Lindy and Edwin Bergman, Chicago, 1983; given to the Art Institute of Chicago, 2018.
