Conclusion

This drawing is part of the collection confiscated from Mr and Mrs May-Fuld, a Jewish couple.

Explanation

Like the drawing by Paulus Constantijn la Fargue, this painting is from the collection of Siegfried Paul Daniël May and his wife Rosine Mariane May-Fuld. The Germans confiscated their collection after the couple committed suicide in May 1940 and sold it at Frederik Muller’s auction house in Amsterdam at sales on 14 -17 October and 2-5 December 1941.
The museum is in contact with the heirs.
