In Tanja Pirsig-Marshall’s and Mario von Lüttichau’s catalogue raisonné, which was published in 2020 by Van Ham Art Publications, it is listed under number G1922/03 (165).

Mueller’s only son inherited this painting, which changed owners for the first time in the 1950s via the Günther Franke Gallery in Munich.

Most recently the work was part of a German private collection for over 40 years. It is now estimated at €1m-1.8m.

The auction takes place on June 5-6 and also includes works by fellow Brücke artists Hermann Max Pechstein and Erich Heckel, all from the same collection.
