Condition: Glue and cloth tape hinge residue to the reverse, subtle toning, minor foxing. Provenance: Henry Lee Higginson, Boston, until d. 1919; by descent in the Higginson family. Literature: Cook, Clarence, "Paintings, Sketches, and Studies by John La Farge," Studio n.s. 5, April 26, 1890, pp. 205-206; La Farge, Bancel, "[List of Lenders, Durand-Ruel Exhibition]," New Haven, Connecticut, unpublished manuscript, La Farge Family Papers, 1895; La Farge, Henry A., "Catalogue Raisonne of the Works of John La Farge," New Haven, Connecticut: Unpublished card file, La Farge Family Papers, c. 1934-74. Exhibitions: Reichard and Co., New York, Catalogue of Drawings, Water Colors, and Paintings by Mr. John La Farge, N.A., 15 Apr.-1 May 1890, no. 12 (under heading "Japanese"); Durand-Ruel Galleries, New York, Paintings, Studies, Sketches and Drawings, Mostly Records of Travel 1886 and 1890-91 by John La Farge, 25 Feb.-25 Mar. 1895, no. 5; Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France, Études, esquisses, dessins: Souvenirs et notes de voyage (1886 et 1890-91) par John La Farge, 24 Apr.-May 1895, [no. 5]. N.B. The work was included in the late Henry A. La Farge's Catalogue Raisonne of the Works of John La Farge, and we wish to thank Dr. James L. Yarnall for updating and supplementing the information for inclusion in this catalogue entry. Like many of La Farge's Japanese sketches, this evidently was based upon an as-yet unlocated photograph and was executed around 1888 in preparation for the publication of his travel journals as a series of travel articles in Century Magazine. A wood engraving after this drawing appeared in La Farge's article "Shrines of Iyeyasu and Iyemitsu in the Holy Mountain of Nikko. An Artist's Letters from Japan," Century Magazine, vol. 39 (Apr. 1890), p. 862. It was republished in book form in John La Farge, An Artist's Letters from Japan (New York: Century Association, 1897), p. 61, and was exhibited at Durand-Ruel in New York in 1895 as Stable of the Sacred Horses in the Temple grounds of Iyeyasu, Nikko.
