None Stamp at lower centre: Lugt 2807c Annotated on verso in the handwriting of Paul Gachet Jr: L'Homme à la pipe; Portrait de mon père (Le Dr Gachet) Eau-forte de Vincent van Gogh; Auvers s/Oise -- Mai 1890. This impression entered the collection of the Rijksprentenkabinet at the early date of 1905 and was therefore very probably printed by Dr. Gachet. Although the annotation is in the handwriting of Paul Gachet Jr., the early provenance of 1905 means that the impression must have come from his father.
