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.'.

Reconstruction origin history

Bachstitz, K.W.B.
The Hague
In several sources, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg is mentioned as the provenance preceding Bachstitz. This is incorrect, however. This particular NK object is a copy after the painting that was originally in the Hermitage. The original painting was later transferred from the Hermitage to the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.
