Ormond and Kilmurray say in their book, Early Portraits (p.63), that not a lot is known about this painting and its origin. In 1923 the painting was purchased by Charles Deering, a close friend of Sargent.
This is a new aquisition to the Art Institute as of 2008 (acquisition from (Saz) a private collection.)
