George W. Vanderbilt (1862-1914); from whom purchased by J. Pierpont Morgan in 1905.
Signed in the center, "RHL (in monogram) van Ryn f" (the 'f' added in state III).
General reworking of the shadows throughout the plate, particularly noticeable in the shadows cast by the tomb slab and post, and by the addition of diagonal shading in the extreme lower right hand corner. (White and Boon)
