Signature Details
The model for this watercolor of a cavalier standing on a Paris street in 1899, was seemingly the same seen posing for the Alten oil titled The Cavalier, 1899 (FRFI1638) (Private collection). That oil was likely The Cavalier exhibitied at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1902.

Additionally, an Alten pen and ink rendering of this model in the same attire (not included in this catalogue) but seen from the rear, was extant in a private collection in 2006.
