Going to the orphanage bears a signature 'C.Springer f.' (lower left) oil on canvas 41 x 49.5cm (16 1/8 x 19 1/2in).
We are grateful to Pieter Overduin for confirming the attribution to Adrianus Eversen after first hand inspeciton.
It has been suggested that the work may have been painted after 1858 when Springer and Eversen shared a studio. The present lot is similar to a composition by Cornelis Springer, see Laanstra et al, Cornelis Springer 1817-1891, Utrecht, 1984, p.118, cat. 59-1.
