An article from March 19, 1928 in the Toronto Daily Star describes the present lot:
'It is the 'Camp of the Wanderers,' by Sommer[sic]. A group of nomads who may be Kurds in Kurdestan[sic] have pitched their tents and spread their bright carpets in the shade of an oasis. To far distant mountains stretches a waste which may be the Gobi desert and full of Dinosaur eggs. It is more than a most successful exercise in chiaroscuro. It is a lesson in ethnology.'
