This work was part of the collection of the early CoBrA-collector Steef de Vries, a passionate collector who also was the driving force behind the Stedelijk Museum in Schiedam. De Vries was especially interested in the abstract and experimental art in the Netherlands and was one of the founders and board members of the ‘Vereniging voor Irrealisme en Abstractie in de beeldende kunst’.
