Such works were often commissioned in pairs, and it is very interesting to note in this regard that the present work, when in private hands in Vienna in the 1950s, boasted a companion piece, described as 'A musical party', in which a portrait of the artist's family was said to have been incorporated. The present whereabouts of that work are not currently known.
This painting will be included in Dr Christina Pucher's forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the works of Johan Georg Platzer.
