The album in which this sketch was received is inscribed on the flyleaf, "Sketches made by/Thomas H. Hotchkiss/Rome, Italy." Hotchkiss and Lucy Durand Woodman, the mother of Nora D. Woodman, were friends; moreover, similar inscriptions appear on other items presented by Miss Woodman to the Society. She is therefore assumed to be the donor.
Gift of Miss Nora Durand Woodman
Estate of Thomas Hiram Hotchkiss; Asher B. durand and Family; Lucy Durand Woodman, Orange, New Jersey
