A photostat of the 1947 Matthiesen gallery invoice states in both Swedish and German that the present figure was appraised by Alfred Westholm (1904-1996), then Dozent at the Göteborg Museum. Westholm led the Swedish Cyprus Expedition between 1927 and 1931. On Christian Faerber see The Tate Gallery: Illustrated catalogue of acquisitions, 1984, p. 175f.
