  1. According to J. B. de la Faille, The Works of Vincent van Gogh: His Paintings and Drawings, rev. ed., Amsterdam, 1970: F626, the painting was lent by Nolthenius to a 1904 exhibition in Rotterdam. Thea Sternheim, wife of the German playwright Carl Sternheim, writes in her diary that they saw the portrait on exhibition in Rotterdam in 1910, lent by Tutein Nolthenius. The painting is still as in the Nothenius collection in the 1939 edition of J. B. de la Faille's book. This owner also lent the painting to exhibitions in Rotterdam in 1927, London in 1929, Amsterdam in 1930, and Delft in 1941. Nolthenius' collection was dispersed by his heirs following his death in 1944. An appraisal of the collection dated February 1944 included the Self Portrait with the annotation "sold" (copy, documentation center, van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam)
  2. The painting was included in a 1945 exhibition of works lent from private collections in Switzerland held at the Galerie Schulthess, Basel. It was also exhibited in the Kunsthalle Bern in 1946 as from a private collection from Bern.
