Conclusion

Because the art dealer M. Wolff possibly owned this painting and was in difficulty during the war, its provenance is uncertain. This art gallery had a jewish owner.

Update 2019

Until recent it was presumed this painting was part of the Rijksmuseum collection. New evidence has shown, however, this painting belongs to the Cultural Heritage Agency (Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed), the successor of the Government department for distributing Art (Dienst 's Rijks Verspreide Kunstvoorwerpen).
