Object history note

Probably purchased from the artist by Constantine Alexander Ionides before 12 July 1868 when William Rossetti noted in his diary that Legros had 'various pictures done or in hand', including 'two (or I believe there are more) large watercolour landscapes, one already hung up in C. Ionides house (at which I saw it in the afternoon)'; probably identical with the 'Landscape with barge, watercolour' listed in Ionides' inventory of November 1881, valued at £300. Bequeathed by C.A. Ionides, 1900

Descriptive line

Alphonse Legros, A canal with a boat.
