Provenance
Francisco de Goya, Madrid, 1808-1812. Francisco Javier de Goya, 1812. Francisco Javier de Mariategui y Sola, ca. 1838. María de la Concepción de Mariategui, 1845. Francisco Antonio Narváez y Bordese, Count of Yumuri, 1851. Francisco Antonio Narváez y Larrinaga, Count of Yumuri, 1866-1877. Collection of M. le Comte de (Count Victor-François-Léonard Huyttens de Terbeck), Hôtel Drouot, París, 25/26-V-1877. Manuel Vidal Ramón, Barcelona, 2-V-1879. Rafael García Palencia, Madrid, 27-XII-1898. Acquisition by the Ministerio de Fomento for the Prado Museum, 20-III-1900

Along with twelve other still lifes, the present work appears in the inventory of Goya's property made after the death of his wife, Josefa Bayeu (1747-1812)

The rich and warm palette and a certain insistence on meticulous technique, perfectly describing the variety of materials, would seem to indicate that, like the Dead Turkey(P00741), this work could date from shortly after 1800.
