F 1b, JH 388

An interesting and sort of disappointing painting as far as the provenance, records are lacking in detail since the painting left A. Brandsma in The Hague, 1963. Reported to have sold at auction with K-Auctions 11 June 1988, one report claims a sale price of ₩2,950,000,000 (South Korean Won) equal to about US$2,696,157 today. Better or more recent photographs were not provided. As this is written, 13 November 2015, there is a news story in the online edition of The Seoul Times reporting that on this very day the painting is once again at auction with the same house, K-Auctions. They claim an estimate of US$2,430,000, but strangely also claim this is the first time the painting is to be found at auction in South Korea.
