Rosa Triplex Puzzle

Just over a week ago I posted news of Christie's London sale of the Surtees Collection in June, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Rosa Triplex portrait of May Morris, Jane Morris's daughter (CLICK). Now here's the puzzle. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has just opened The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy: British Art and Design (CLICK). And who do I see but May Morris? How many versions of Rosa Triplex did Rossetti paint? The MoMA database produced no results when I searched it. Don't tell me MoMA bought this version from a US pastor!
