Paul Émile Chabas: September Morn, 1912

September Morn was first exhibited at the Paris Salon of May 1912, and although sources disagree as to its first owner, it is clear that Leon Mantashev acquired the painting by the end of 1913. It was taken to Russia, and when the October Revolution broke out in 1917 September Morn was feared lost. It resurfaced in 1935, in the collection of Calouste Gulbenkian, and after his death in 1955 the work was sold to a Philadelphia broker, who donated it anonymously to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met) in 1957. After fourteen years on display at the Met and other institutions, it was put into storage. As of 2014 it is not on display. 

Note: the image displayed attempts to render the painting approximate to its original appearance in 1912.
