Commentary: Circa 1930, David Reinhardt, Jr., bought this painting from his friend, Frank Schoonover. In 1967 he gave it to his daughter-in-law, Jane Reinhardt, for her birthday.
When the work was conserved in July 2003, an additional inscription to Kyle (noted above) was found under some overpainting in the lower left above the signature. It is thought that Schoonover planned to give the painting to Frank Kyle, but for some reason did not. He subsequently overpainted the inscription and sold it to Mr. Reinhardt.
