Provenance

Frank Hall Standish [1799-1840], Seville;[1] bequeathed to King Louis Philippe of France [1773-1850]; by descent to his heirs; (sale, Catalogue des tableaux formant la célèbre collection Standish léguée à S.M. feu le roi Louis Philippe par Mr. Frank Hall Standish, Christie, Manson & Woods, London, 27-28 May 1853, no. 112, as "Légende de Saint Dominique"); to Alphonse Oudry (sale, Hôtel Drouot, Paris, 16-17 April 1869, no. 157, as "Evêque instruisant deux religieuses");[2] (Oudry sale, Hôtel Drouot, Paris, 10 April 1876, no. 60, as "Evêque instruisant deux saintes religieuses"). Maximo Scioletti [d. 1951], Paris; purchased 1951 by (M. Knoedler & Co., New York and Pinakos, Inc.);[3] sold February 1952 to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, New York;[4] gift to NGA 1952.

[1] Standish bequeathed his important collection of Spanish pictures and drawings to Louis-Philippe, who added them to the Galerie Espagnole of the Louvre, where they were displayed until 1848.

[2] Because the painting was offered again by the same vendor in 1876, it might have been bought in at the 1869 sale.

[3] See letter dated 26 August 1988 from Getty Provenance Index, in NGA curatorial files. The painting was owned jointly by Knoedler's and Pinakos. Pinakos, Inc. was the firm name used by Rudolf Heinemann in the 1940s and 1950s.

[4] 6 February 1952 invoice from Knoedler's to the Kress Foundation, NGA curatorial files. See also M. Knoedler and Co. Records, Series II, Box 76 (Sales Book No. 16, Paintings, 1945-1953), Getty Research Institute (copy NGA curatorial files).
