This work was inherited 30 years ago by the present owner.
It belonged to an aunt who was employed by a pastor in France in the first half of the 20th century. The present owner suspects that she acquired it there, probably as a gift.
The house in the embroidered picture shows strong resemblance to several drawings and prints of Huis Over-Holland along the river Vecht, Nieuwersluis, the Netherlands. Please see attached images:
1) Het huis Over-Holland, gezien van de overzijde van de Vecht by Lutgers, Petrus Josephus, 1868. Drawing on paper in pencil, brown and grey ink.
Collection: Centraal Museum Utrecht, inv: 9379/024.
This drawing is part of a series of 61 views in the Vecht area by Lutgers, all in the collection of the Centraal Museum (inv.nrs.9379 / 001 - 9379/061). The series was made between 1866 and 1872 on behalf of Mr. Matthes, the then resident of Kweekhoven in Breukelen.
