PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF PROFESSOR EGBERT HAVERKAMP-BEGEMANN
The present painting has the distinction of once having been the property of Charles L. Hutchinson, Founder and President of The Art Institute of Chicago; Colonel Capton Michael Paul, a Russian migrant to America who made his fortune in petroleum, and in whose house at Palm Beach this painting hung when President John F. Kennedy and his family spent the Christmases of 1961 and 1962 there; and latterly, Professor Egbert Haverkamp-Begemann, whose remarkable legacy in the field of Dutch and Flemish painting is perpetuated today through the generations of leading academics and curators that he taught.
