Conclusion

Who the owner of this painting was before it arrived at the museum during the Second World War is no longer known.

Explanation

This painting appears on a list in the museum archive drawn up in April 1945 stating which items had been brought to the Weigh House and which to Bank van Lening. The painting is mentioned here as ‘safekeeping’. A safe number on an old inventory card suggests that the work was acquired during the war. A later inventory card notes that ‘Not a trace has been found regarding its origins’.
