John Chandler Bancroft, Middletown, Rhode Island, 1860s; (sold, Gustave J. S. White Co., Auctioneers, Newport, Rhode Island, March 28, 1989, to a New England antiques dealer); private collection, 1989; (Sotheby's, New York, April 13, 2007, lot 22)

Sotheby's catalogue entry (4/13/07, lot 22) reads: "The present photograph was taken on the grounds of the Château de Courances, located approximately 11 miles from the town of Fontainebleau, and 31 miles from Paris. Designed and built in the 1620s, Courances was known for its intricate network of manmade waterways which, unlike the ostentatious waterworks at Versailles, blended naturally into the landscape. The flowing waterways consist of a series of canals, as well as a large reflecting pool."
