Bears two red and white labels affixed to the stretcher. The first, in typescript Taos Mission 20 x 24 C-13. The word Camelia and the numeral 3 appear there diagonally in pencil. The second label handwritten in ink reads Ins. 1:9 -.20 x ?? Building in Taos.
See also NMAR1985 and NMAR1092 for paintings of the same mission. NMAR1092 appears to have been painted later than Alten's 1927 trip to Taos,and possibly during 1929.
