This drawing is part of a group of 508 drawings from the Koenigs Collection, which was sold in the fall of 1940 by D.G. van Beuningen to Dr. Hans Posse, Hitler's Sonderbeauftragter Linz. This transaction was in violation of Dutch laws and international agreements. See the publication by Albert J. Elen, Missing Old Master Drawings from the Franz Koenigs Collection claimed by the State of The Netherlands, Den Haag 1989
