    EXHIBITED:
    London, Royal Academy, Winter Exhibition, 1926, no. 146

    The Royal Academy Winter Exhibition of 1926 was devoted to the work of the recently deceased John Singer Sargent.The exhibition included 631 paintings, drawings and watercolors of which over 230 were lent by his Mrs. Violet Ormond and Miss Emily Sargent. Among these were numerous depictions of the Holy Land. The catalogue to the exhibition lists five watercolors and four oils owned by either Mrs.Ormond or Miss Sargent that had Jerusalem in their title. There is only one work titled Bethlehem and it is indicated as belonging to Miss Sargent. The preponderance of Jerusalem titles may account for the mistitling on the R.A. label of the present work.
