Robert Hartshorne, New Jersey (L. 2215b)
By descent to the present owner.
Please note that the drawing in this lot is related to the soft-ground etching in theme only. It is presumably a transfer drawing for a separate larger etching, for which no impressions are known to exist. The present drawing does not appear in Breeskin's catalogue raisonné of Cassatt's oils, pastels, watercolors, and drawings, but bears a resemblance to catalogue number 755.
