Fine condition.The photograph was originally part of the archive of art collector and dealer, Ambrose Vollard (1868-1939). The number "983" is in pencil at the upper edge of the mount, probably to identify the location of his origibal painting. In order to avoid any future disputes regarding the authenticity of works by artists Vollard represented, he had all the original paintings photographed, then asked the artist to sign each photo, and had the signature witnessed. The purple stamping beneath Renoir'`s signature is in French with the artist's name and date witnessed in manuscript: "Seen in order to authenticate / the signature of / Pierre Auguste Renoir, artist painter / above affixed / Cagnes the 10 January 1911." Signed by the Mayor of Cagnes-Sur-Mer to the right of his official circular stamping in French: "Cagnes / Alpes Maritimes" with "Mayor" inside of a laurel. (Inventory #: 61438)
