Findings

The provenance data are inconclusive. It is not known when and from whom P.N. Menten purchased this painting.
Opmerkingen: 
P.N. Menten returned with 'three wagonloads of possessions' from the Polish town of Lemberg, which was occupied by the Germans in 1943. It is therefore possible that this painting has a Polish provenance. P.N. Menten was convicted of war crimes in Poland in 1980.
