Art market, Florence; Philip Lehman [1861-1947], New York, by 1917; sold September 1943 to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New York; gift 1952 to NGA.
 Osvald Sirén (1917) cites the painting as formerly belonging to a Florentine art dealer; the terminus post quem for Lehman's purchase might be 1911, the year in which he began his activity as a collector.

 Lehman 1928, no. 5. The bill of sale between Robert Lehman and the Kress Foundation for three paintings, including Madonna and Child with Angels, is dated 15 September 1943 (copy in NGA curatorial files). The documents concerning the 1943 sale indicate that Philip Lehman’s son Robert Lehman (1892-1963) was the owner of the paintings, but it is not clear in the Lehman Collection archives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, whether Robert made the sale for his father or on his own behalf. See Laurence Kanter’s e-mail of 6 May 2011, about ownership of the Lehman collection, in NGA curatorial files.
