{1} A photograph of the artist Théo van Rysselberghe in his study, dated about 1922, shows this small painting by Denis hanging on the wall. See Ronald Feltkamp, Théo van Rysselberghe, 1862-1926 (with catalogue raisonné), Brussels, 2003, p. 13. Rysselberghe met Denis already in 1890, and was known to have exchanged works of art with his artist friends.
