Note on Provenance

Einar Perman Sr was born in Stockholm in 1893 and died there in 1976. He followed in his father’s footsteps as a surgeon and pursued a successful career in the city’s hospitals and in private practice. In 1930 a meeting with the famous Amsterdam dealers in Dutch Golden Age paintings and drawings, Piet and Nellie de Boer, triggered Perman’s interest in Dutch and Flemish art. At first he focused on paintings, but subsequently turned to collecting drawings, which was to be a lifelong passion. The majority of his collection of drawings was dispersed in a sale at Sotheby’s Amsterdam in 1975, and some of the remainder was sold more recently at Sotheby’s in New York: others, and some of his paintings, are included in this sale. Einar Perman’s personal taste is clear to see here. As his son, also Einar Perman (1931–2023) wrote, ‘he was a landscape collector, not a people collector’. While his collection included (as in this sale) still lifes and genre pictures, landscape painting and drawing was his first love, and it his hardly surprising to find among these paintings by Allaert van Everdingen of Scandinavian subjects.
