Second World War as a war loss registered, the painting turned up again in 2008 in Ankara where it
had been held in the German embassy since 1934.
On its arrival in the Old National Gallery Berlin the painting was in a bad state. The most

measure conception based on the examination of the damages was provided, as well as the
technological investigation to the consolidation of the damage of the paperboard support. With
