On the verso is the stamped dealer's mark of Albert Van Loock (1917-2011), a well-known dealer of prints and old drawings in Brussels (Les Marques de Collections de Dessins & d'Estampes: L.3751). The provenance could well be the collection of Victor Conard (1919-1981) who inherited a collection of Japanese prints from his father Alexandre Conard.
