Conclusion

The ivory relief was part of the forced sale of the German-Jewish art dealership A.S. Drey at the auction house Paul Graupe, Berlin on 17/18-06-1936, where it was acquired by an unknown buyer.

Explanation

This ivory relief entered the collection of the museum with the acquisition of the art collection from the estate of D.G. van Beuningen. According to his purchases book, D.G. van Beuningen acquired it from the art dealer Jacques Goudstikker as ‘ex-coll. Stroganoff’ in 1939. This is probably the Russian art collector Grigoriy Sergeyevich Stroganov (1829-1910). Research shows that the ivory relief was sold at the forced sale of the trading stock of the Jewish firm Kunsthandlung A.S. Drey, Munich at the Berlin auction house Paul Graupe on 17/18-06-1936, where it was acquired by an unknown buyer. It is not known when and how Goudstikker acquired the work.
