Anonymous sale, London, Sotheby's, 13 July 1983, lot 67 (as attributed to Jacob Pynas), where bought by Daan Cevat.
A. Repp, Goffredo Wals. Zur Landschaftsmalerei zwischen Adam Elsheimer und Claude Lorrain, Cologne 1986, pp. 77-8, no. 15, reproduced fig. 15.
When he bought this picture in 1983, Daan Cevat doubted the attribution to Pynas, thinking that Goffredo Wals, of whom he had owned another work (see Repp under Literature, p. 76, no. 14), was more likely to have painted it. He therefore drew it to the attention of Anke Repp, who subsequently confirmed the attribution and published it.
