His will specified that $1,3000,000 was to be spent 10 years after his death for a hospital. By 1902 the money had appreciated to $2,000,000 and was used to establish the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston. Provenance from consignor: The restorer of the painting discovered a pencil number on the stretcher that the restorer recognized as a Vose Gallery inventory number.
