Provenance help-art-provenance

Purchased by Soane at Christie's 17 January 1800, Lot 81. The 1840 inventory of paintings in the Soane Archive says that this picture was formerly in the Beckford collection at Fonthill. The sale catalogue of 1800 (Soane Archive) has the name 'Foxhall' recorded alongside Soane's name as the buyer. It is possible that this records Edward Foxhall acting as agent for one of William Beckford senior's pictures being sold through him.
