Provenance: Ismar Littmann, Breslau; thence by descent to the current owners.

Tischler (1892-1938) moved to Breslau with his family in 1897 and studied art and architecture at the Breslau Academy. After World War I, Tischler returned to Breslau and became an instructor at the Academy. Though not as well-known today as some of his contemporaries from Breslau, Tischler was a close friend of Otto Mueller and one of many local artists to be championed by the esteemed collector Ismar Littmann. Tischler's work was prohibited by the Nazis into the late 1930s, and, in 1938, he was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp where he died soon after.
