According to early references and the recent catalogue raisonne (see below), at some point after 1919, probably in the 1920s, the card support of this painting was split, removing a second painting (now unlocated) that had been on the verso, and then mounted on a new backing card. There are traces of an old label, barely illegible inscriptions (perhaps a return address and an alternative title "Kind zwischen Bäumen" [Child Between Trees] and an unidentified stamp (the number 11 or letter N over 66 [or 99 over 11/N in a circle) now on the verso.
