It was Sir George's donation of a major part of his collection to the nation that was to have a decisive effect on the creation of a National Gallery. The small version of this picture was originally given to Mary Wordsworth because of its inspiration of Wordsworth's poem, but was later retrieved by Sir George's wife.
Possibly Mary Wordsworth, a gift from the artist; Lady Beaumont, retrieved from Mary Wordsworth and given to Sir Uvedale Price; private collection, England to the late 1970s; Dr Michael Jaye, London.
