Presumably the painting was painted during the 1930s.

Salomon Garf was born on 6 December 1879 on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam as the son of a stockbroker. His fathers family had worked in the diamond industry for generations, but Salomon was more attracted to the arts. He received his first drawing lessons at the Hendrick de Keyserschool and attended the Quellinusschool, the State School for Crafts and the State Academy for Visual Arts, where he was taught by A. Allebé, C.L. Dake, N. van der Waay and G. Sturm. With the painting ‘Elisa wekt het kind der Sunamitische weduwe op’ he went to the Prix de Rome. Jan Sluijters won the prize.
After completion of the State Academy, he settled in Laren and joined the so-called ‘Club van Tien’ (Club of ten) of young painters. In Laren, he painted mostly interiors, landscapes and farming types, with which he stood out due to their fine colours and superb technique. In 1914 he moved back to Amsterdam. Here he began to do portraits, often of his son and his wife and also of many Dutch celebrities. He received the Willink van Collenprijs for the painting ‘Op verboden terrein’.
Garf was, except for his portraits, best known for his paintings of subjects such as elegant salons and boudoirs with women dressing up. Furthermore, he regularly exhibited flowers, stilllifes, landscapes and nude studies. His style was naturalistic. Garf was counted among the leading painters in the capital and was a member of Arti et Amicitiae. For the painting ‘Stilleven met dodenmasker van Beethoven’ he received the Gold Medal of the Queen.

In the 1930s he was involved with artists aiding refugees from Nazi Germany. Under the German occupation it became impossible for him as a Jew to work freely. He was Secretary of the Purchasing Commission of the Van Leer Stichting, which helped Jewish artists earn a living. Salomon Garf was deported and killed in Auschwitz on 27 August 1943.

Works by Garf are included in the collections of the Joods Historisch Museum, the Drents Museum, Singer Museum Laren and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, amongst others.
