It's a sketch for an engraving from the series entitled "Four landscapes" (Opus VII). It had been sold on auction at the Börner salon in Leipzig, in 1924. Afterwards it joined the Leo Smoschewer's collection. In 1939 the engraving was sequestrated as a Jewish property and then it reached the Schlesisches Museum der Bildenden Künste in Wroclaw, where it was registered in the inventory under the No. 27783. Since 1946 the engraving has been stored in the National Museum of Warsaw.
