Provenance: Purchased by me from Phillips Auctioneers, Blenstock House London in May 1995. It has been ripped into about 5 pieces and then stuck back together. I would love to know what the story is behind the ripping up and repair. The answer is probably fairly mundane, but it doesn’t stop us from speculating!. It was with five other paintings by Roland Hilder (The others were all complete and undamaged”). They were artworks for magazine covers in the late 1920’s or early 1930’s. I think it was for House and Garden or House and Home but I do not know it they were ever actually used.
