The German-Jewish businessman Ernst Flersheim fled to the Netherlands in 1937. Among his possessions were two works by Jan Toorop, a painting of The Thames and a drawing titled Faith in God. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen acquired the works through the art trade in 1937 and 1943 respectively and had held them ever since. This Boijmans Study describes Anita Hopmans's research into the acquisition of these works and their restitution to Flersheim's heirs.
