and the press release by the SMK museum
which states :

The painting was unlawfully sold to Kurt Feldhäusser, a member of the Nazi party.
Upon Feldhäusser’s death in 1945, ownership of his collection passed to his mother, who brought the work to the United States. Via donation, it arrived first at The Museum of Modern Art and then The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Following extensive studies of its provenance, the picture was restituted to the Flechtheim heirs in 2018. In the autumn of 2018 the painting came up for auction, where it was sold to the Norwegian fund Sparebankstiftelsen DNB.
