Provenance: Espinós, Director at the Escola de Flors i Ornats (the School of Flowers and Adornments) in the Valencia Academy, sent for the disposal of the Junta de Comerç of Barcelona in 1789, several paintings of flowers and drawings for the classes on this subject which were held at the Escola de Llotja; two of the flower paintings were returned to Espinós in 1790. The present work is probably one of the items of that consignement which remained in Barcelona. Came to the Academy's Museum: 1789 (?). Observations: The work by Antoni Sort in this same Museum (inv. no. 123) is a copy with variations of this same painting.
