From Philadelphia Museum of Art:
When Charles Ingersoll donated Woman with Loaves to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1931, it was the first work by Picasso to enter its collection. The painting had caught the attention of his son R. Sturgis Ingersoll, a young lawyer and budding collector of modern art, who persuaded his conservative father to purchase the work on the Museum's behalf. When Charles Ingersoll first saw the painting, he was stunned by its unconventional appearance and declared, "Is that what I gave?" His son's instincts, however, proved correct as Woman with Loaves has long been considered one of the Museum's most important early acquisitions.
