The card could be seen in 1930 in Dresden, at an exhibition organized in the Galerie Neue Kunst Fides, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Paul Klee's birthday. Klee himself gave his work, designated with the number 330, the title „Dyke“. After the exhibition, although the exact year is unknown, the work was purchased by Max Silberberg. It belonged to the artworks which remained in Silberberg's collection till the end and which were seized in 1939 as Jewish art property. Since then no data on the artwork have been known, it is one of the works by Paul Klee whose aspect has so far remained unknown.
