Alten exhibited a watercolor painting titled, "Flower Stall" at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1902, and it is likely the painting shown here. The exhibition also included several French pictures from his 1898-99 trip to Paris to study at the academies there. He  later painted a small oil of nearly the same composition that has also been assigned the same title.
