According to the exhibition catalogue the provenance indicated by Bödiger could not be conclusively verified. Albert von Goldschmidt-Rothschild cannot be seen as a possible commissioner, as he was only born in 1879. Nevertheless there is a close connection to the family Rothschild to Kronberg and the artist's colony there. Carl Wilhelm and Hannah Mathilde Rothschild in the year 1887 built the Villa Rothschild as a summer residency in Kronberg. Hannah Mathilde had a close friendship with Victoria, widow of Emperor Friedrich II. And she was at the societal centre of the Kronberg artist's colony. Therefore there are also points of contact between the artists and the Rothschild family. To Rumpf as well, the family had close contact and commissioned him as painter. He thus portrayed the nieces Emma and Clementine. As such the Rothschild family could well be taken into consideration as commissioners of this room decoration.
