Findings

The provenance data are conclusive. Belonged to the former collection of K.W.B. Bachstitz art dealers.
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.'.
