Other Relevant Historical Information:

The painting was probably acquired by Gustav Adolf von Ingenheim during his journeys to Italy. Around 1870 the painting was moved to new family residence in Reisewitz, where it was damaged by fire. The painting was restored in das Schlesisches Museum der bildenden Künste, Breslau. After splitting the collection between three brothers, Rudolf, Harald and Manfred (grandsons of Gustav Adolf von Ingenheim), the painting was given to Harald von Ingeheim. Together with some other works of art forming his part of the collection it was deposited in das Schlesisches Museum der bildenden Künste prior to 1939. In 1940 or 1941 the part of the Ingenheim collection belonging to Harald von Ingenheim was taken over by his younger brother Manfred. Then in July 1942 the painting was evacuated to the collecting point in Kamenz, from where it found its way to the National Museum in Warsaw.
