Stockholm, sale, Bukowskis, November 24, 1999, lot 469: "Jean-Antoine Watteau . . . KÄRLEKSBRUNNEN. Uppferodrad duk 44 x 61. 20.000-30.000." Bought in.
The composition is not related to Watteau but, rather, it is after Pater. It copies a well-known, much larger painting that was formerly at the Neues Palais in Potsdam, but which was destroyed in World War II.
