"Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1835 by A.B. Durand in the clerk's office of the District Court of the Southern District of New York."
Daniel Huntington visited Durand's studio in 1836, stating: "In 1836 ... I first met Durand. ... [He] showed us some plates in progress, among others that of the Ariadne, then approaching completion." See Huntington, D. Asher B. Durand a memorial address, New York, 1887, p. 24.
Durand visited Paris in August, 1840, meeting with Henri Rittner in order to have Rittner sell impressions of the engraving. "This is the earliest documented contact between an American artist and the Maison Goupil ..." see McIntosh, D. in Magazine Antiques, September, 2004.
The original plate is located at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and early states of the print are located at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
