The painting executed in 1898 was sold in 1914, from A. W. F. Müller's private collection in Hamburg, by the Gallery Heinemann to the Moderne Galerie (Thannhauser), both located in Munich (por. Already in 1916 the same picture belonged to the collection of Carl Sachs, as we can learn from the „Kunstchronik". Carl Sachs lent also this painting for two exhibitions of German 19th Century Painting: in Basel and Zurich (1917). In 1926 the picture could be seen at the Great Exhibition of Corinth in Berlin.

Carl Sachs wasn't able to take the painting by Corinth as he emigrated. In 1940 the artwork was sequestrated from Wrocław and sent to the museum in Görlitz. Afterwards the picture was transferred to the depository in Kunów (Kuhna in German) and since then it has been regarded as missing.
