Clearly dated 1915, this is obviously a studio picture completed in Grand Rapids three years after Alten's 1912 Spanish trip.

A painting with these dimensions, signed lr, dated 1915, and titled, "Oxen and Spanish Fishermen" was de-accessioned and sold by the Grand Rapids Art Museum, to an unknown party, apparently in the Grand Rapids area, on March 3, 1965. This is likely that painting.
