Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau: "Mad nöje tillmötesgar jag Eder anhaltan och sänder härmed det önskade autogrammet [...]".

Admitted to the Stockholm Academy at the early age of 14, Kronberg specialized in mythological and religious themes, drawing on the works of Shakespeare as well as the Bible, and created canvases and ceiling frescoes for the Stockholm Palace or the Kronberg Royal Dramatic Theatre.

Postmarks on verso showing through; traces of a vertical fold. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
