Isenbrant, Adriaen (Flemish, 1490-1551)

Baron Henri-Marie-Bruno-Joseph-Léon Kervyn de Lettenhove [1856-1928], St. Michel-lez-Bruges and Brussels; by descent to Colette H. Dawson (Mrs. John W. Dawson), Zionsville, Indiana, from 1948 {1}; purchased in 1960 by Mrs. G.H.A. Clowes [1885-1967], Indianapolis {2}; the Clowes Fund Collection, 1967-2010 and on long-term loan to the Indianapolis Museum of Art since 1971.

{1} Upon the death of Baron Henri Kervyn de Lettenhove in 1928, his estate was divided between his wife (who died in 1934) and one surviving child, the Vicomtesse Roger le Sergeant d'Hendecourt (died 1942). The four children of the latter were minors on the death of their father; two died in 1945, and the estate remained undivided until 1948, when it was inherited by Colette Dawson and her sister. Correspondence from John W. Dawson to Allen W. Clowes, 23 September 1960 (IMA, Clowes Collection Archive).
