According to Alice Strobl, Gustav Klimt’s inscription R identifies the present work as part of a group of drawings selected for Carl Reininghaus who purchased from the artist the famous Beethovenfries (today in the Secession Museum, Vienna). The present work is thought to be a preparatory study for the oils Irrlichter and Beethovenfries.
