Opmerkingen:J. Hakker relinquished the painting by De Poorter to the looting bank of Lippmann, Rosenthal & Co. in Amsterdam during the war. In July 1946 J. Hakker died in New York. Bureau 'Hergo' notified Hakker's heirs in 1951 that it might be possible to arrange for the painting's restitution. There was a condition attached - that the heirs would relinquish their Hfl. 3,100.- claim against the Organisation for the Liquidation of Verwaltung Sarphatistraat (LVVS) and pay the cost of transport and care. This offer was rejected. In 1951 the authorised representative of Hakker's heirs wrote to 'Hergo' that the interested parties 'do not wish to have the painting by De Poorter returned to them under the conditions you have set' (SNK Archive nr.141).
