Known Provenance
Artist to Eyrich Family through descent, Phimister Proctor Church (2014), Denver Art Museum (2016) The provenance as listed is as complete as it is currently possible to present. Although incomplete, there are no obvious reasons to believe that this work exchanged hands in continental Europe during the years 1933 to 1945 (Nazi-Era). Works by Western American artists were on occasion (rarely) collected by Europeans preceding 1933, however there are to my knowledge (Thomas B. Smith), no existing or known cases of works subjected to resolutions or claims for Nazi-Era cultural assets.
