Woman in Window with a Pear

View through Harvard Museums
Department of Drawings Sir Charles Greville (L. 549 verso lower left) by descent; to his nephew George Guy Greville Fourth Earl of Warwick Warwick Castle (without the family mark L. 2600) by descent; to Charles Guy Fulke Greville Seventh Earl of Warwick sold; [Sotheby's London 17 March 1936 part of lot 128];* to [Edward Speelman London]. [Schaeffer Galleries New York] sold; to Leroy M. Backus Seattle; [Schaeffer Galleries New York] sold; to [Robert M. Light & Co. Boston] sold; to the Fogg Art Museum 1956; Friends of the Fogg Art Museum Fund 1956.228. *In the 1936 Sotheby’s sale from the Earl of Warwick's collection the Fogg drawing and another small study by Bol executed primarily in gray wash Bust of a Bearded Old Man in a Velvet Beret (Sumowski Drawings 1 no. 143x) were sold as a single lot in one frame. In his entry on the Fogg study (Drawings 1 no. 105) Sumowski describes the drawing formerly in the Earl of Warwick collection as a separate work--“A pen and wash drawing of the same representation (127 x 101 mm) perhaps the conceptional (sic) sketch for the present drawing”--but they are one in the same. The dimensions he gives for the putative sketch are those of Bust of a Bearded Old Man in a Velvet Beret which is smaller than the Fogg sheet and this is perhaps why he assumed that the Warwick Woman in a Window with a Pear was another version of the composition.
