Inscription Notes

[1] Even though the painting is dated 1871, according to Aaron Sheon of the Department of Fine Arts, University of Pittsburgh, in a statement of 9 May 1977, "... the signature and date are additions. The work dates from the 1880s, not 1871 as signed." The statement is recorded on the Corcoran accession record sheet, in NGA curatorial files.
