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. After splitting the collection between three brothers, Rudolf, Harald and Manfred (grandsons of Gustav Adolf von Ingenheim), the painting was given to Rudolf von Ingeheim. It was deposited in das Schlesisches Museum der bildenden Künste prior to 1939. Then in July 1942 the painting was evacuated to the collecting point in Kamenz, from where it was retrieved to the National Museum in Warsaw in March 1946.
