  • Provenance: Possibly Joseph Daniel Böhm [1794-1865], Vienna; possibly (his sale, Alexandre Posonyi, Vienna, 4 December 1865, no. 1682).[1] (Cottier & Co., New York); sold 1889 to Mrs. Henry Osborne Havemeyer [née Louisine Waldron Elder, 1855-1929], New York; (sale, American Art Association, Anderson Galleries, New York, 10 April 1930, no. 46); Chester Dale [1883-1962], New York; gift 1943 to NGA. [1] Lucius Grisebach, Willem Kalf, 1619-1693, Berlin, 1974, 258, no. 102, suggests that the Still Life might be identified as the Böhm painting auctioned in Vienna on 4 December 1865. The painting in this sale, however, was probably another composition, for it is described in the auction catalogue as having four pomegranates ("vier spanische Granatäpfel").
