Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Acquired at the turn of the 19th Century by Joseph Mitchell of Bolton Hall, near Rotherham; thence by direct descent.

    Our picture is a small version, with minor differences, of the picture sold as 'The wishing well' (110.5 x 85 cm.) at Christie's East, Wednesday, October 25, 2000 [Lot 55].

    As Alex Kidson writes in his article in the British Art Journal, (Volume VI No.3), the Mitchell family from Bolton Hall, Rotherham, Yorkshire, had a number of paintings by Bukovac. We know of portraits of the family, Mr and Mrs H. Mitchell and their daughters, however the whereabouts of these paintings is unknown.
    The Mitchells were great of Bukovac's great patron, Samson Fox esq.
