5.2.1 Salomon Wegner

Von Holst identified the work by the local artist Salomon Wegner, a tronie or study of a head, as a painting from the collection of Jacob Kabrun jr [i] that is to have been in the collection of the Stadtmuseum in Danzig in 1934.1 Should this prove correct, the work must have been acquired by Kabrun at some later date, as he was not born until 1759 in Danzig, where he died in 1814.
