Marble relief depicting Numa Pompilius and Egeria in the cave in front of the gate of Capenia in Rome
The provenance data are inconclusive. It is not known when and from whom K.W.B. Bachstitz art dealers purchased this relief.
Opmerkingen:It is possible that K.W.B. Bachstitz, a stateless Austrian who ran an art dealership in The Hague from the 1920s onwards, was forced to sell this painting. On 6 February 1950, in response to a letter from the SNK in which the SNK inquired whether the artworks stated were sold to Germany voluntarily or under pressure, Bachstitz's wife wrote: 'In answer to your letter dated 30 January 1950, I state that during the enemy occupation my husband was forced to sell the art objects listed - as well as the sales recorded at the time - under undue influence.'.
