This drawing bears the collector’s mark of the lawyer Friedrich Schöne (1882-1963), part of whose collection of 19th century German drawings may have been inherited from his father, the archaeologist and museum director Richard Schöne (1840-1922). Another drawing by Bendemann from Friedrich Schöne’s collection, a pen and ink Landscape with Washerwomen at Gorbio of 1867, was recently on the art market in Germany.
