Oil on cardboard 32.8 x 24.9 cm, framed. Signed Slevogt in black upper right as well as dated Weihnachten 1903 lower left. - Following kind confirmation by Sigrun Paas, Max Slevogt-Galerie, Schloß Villa Ludwigshöhe, Edenkoben, the painting was doubtlessly signed later, possibly when Slevogt ceded it to his friend and collector of his works Carl Steinbart. - The lower edge of cardboard irregularly trimmed; slightly compressed in places with minimal loss of colour lower left.

Imiela (1968), p. 380, footnote 46, with ill. 144, p. 302 (recorded there as "Leinwand" (canvas) and "unbezeichnet" (not signed))
