Other Relevant Historical Information:

The painting was probably acquired by Gustav Adolf von Ingenheim during his journeys to Italy. After splitting the collection between three brothers, Rudolf, Harald and Manfred (grandsons of Gustav Adolf von Ingenheim), the painting was given to Franz von Ingeheim. At the beginning of the 20th century it belonged to Franz’s son - Harald Count von Ingenheim and it was located in the family residence in Reisewitz. After the second world war the painting was acquired by art dealer Curt Reinhaldt. Reinhaldt sold it to baron von Preuschen (Comano) in 1962. Ten years later it was purchased by Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart.
