Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Artist's estate sale, New York, 15 -17 March 1905, lot 165.


    This oil study was executed in situ in North Africa probably in the late 1870s. It was included in the artist's estate sale in New York, where it sold for $22.50. Given what is known of Weeks' working method, this study was executed for the purpose of incorporating the figure and/or costume into a later studio composition, however a specific use of the subject figure has not yet been identified.

    We are grateful to Ellen K. Morris for confirming the authenticity of the work and for providing cataloguing information. Moorish girl in yellow will be included in Dr. Morris' forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the artist.
