Sarah Stein was an avid American art collector. With her husband Michael Stein, the older brother of Leo Stein and Gertrude Stein, she lived in Paris from 1903 to 1935. She supported and popularized the painter Henri Matisse, loaning a number of Matisse's pieces for exhibit in the 1913 Armory show. [Wiki].
A piece presented by Matisse's most ardent champion, hence an enviable provenance.
