Other Relevant Historical Information:

The painting was purchased by Max Silberberg in 1923. Also this picture had to be offered on auction in 1935, in the Berliner Paul Graupe Salon. Therefore the painting entered the art market and in 1961 it was purchased by the Münchener Galerie Neumeister, finally it became part of Georg Schäfer's property. Currently it is housed in Georg Schäfer's Museum in Schweinfurt.

In "Süddeutsche Zeitung" the following was stated as regards the looted art in Georg Schäfer's collection: "Schweinfurt remain tight-lipped despite or perhaps because of the specific legal inquiries..." (Ira Mazzoni, Verweigerte Aufklärung, In: "Süddeutsche Zeitung", No. 287, 12.12.2013). Also in that case, as opposed to many artworks from Silberberg's collection, currently in public and private possession, no reliable and accurate solution has been found so far.
