    LITERATURE
    R. Schmit, Eugène Boudin, vol. III, Paris, 1973, no. 3269, illustrated p.253.

    The first recorded owner of the present work was the French actor Constant-Benoît Coquelin, known as Coquelin aîné (1841-1909), described in the New York Times as 'one of the greatest theatrical figures of his age' (28 January 1909). Coquelin was a leading member of the Comédie Française for almost 50 years, and frequently toured Europe and America. Although particularly noted for his interpretations of Molière, it was perhaps his appearance as Cyrano de Bergerac, including performances opposite Sarah Bernhardt as Roxanne in Paris, London and New York, that brought him widest fame. He counted many leading artists as friends, including Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema, and owned a notable collection of contemporary paintings many of which were gifts from the artists.
