Purchase, Ian Woodner Family Foundation Gift, 1974. This is a presumable creditline only, as this drawing was found on June 24, 2003, uncatalogued, unmounted, and stuck within another sheet, but with the double accession no. 1974.605.4 written on it, at which point it was renumbered 1974.605.4 bis. Acquisition papers of May and June 1974 also mistakenly do not take this sheet into account, see Natali object file.
