– After a review of the pumpkins/gourds, we believe it may be the same ones shown in a work from 1866, Still Life with Gourds and Pitcher.
– There is a mention of a pumpkin art work from Carlsen selling in Chicago but we were unable to figure out which one in particular. This could be the one?
2010 – Unsold.
