Commentary: Robert Lee Kincaid, President of Lincoln Memorial University, Harrowgate, Tennessee, saw the painting while on a fundraising trip to Chicago or Indianapolis in the 1940’s. Because he liked the painting and could not afford it, a Lincoln Memorial University donor gifted it to him and it has remained in his family. A family picture is taken with it every Christmas. The painting was evacuated from Pauley’s Island, South Carolina when Hurricane Hugo struck in 1989 and later returned. (owner family history)
Provenance: Sold by artist to Richard Lee Kincaid, Harrowgate, Tennessee [1943]; descended in the family to private collection
