Before the opening of the exhibition Irina Andrienko, the curator of the museum, told journalists about the history of the picture and the events that preceded her return. This painting with a picture of a pond surrounded by silvery willows was written by Polenov in 1881. For the first time it was seen by the public at an exhibition held in Taganrog in 1887.
After 20 years, the merchant Zakharov Andrey in 1913 showed the work at the exhibition, presenting it as his property. In the twenties the picture was nationalized, and in 1928 it was already considered the property of the museum.
Polenov’s canvas returned to Russia thanks to the work of the German-Russian Dialogue group. Its participants are engaged in studying the origin of works of art, since the Great Patriotic War in Germany. According to the information received, this picture was taken from the Taganrog Museum in 1943.

At the end of September 2017 in the museum of the city of Kiel held a public ceremony of the transfer of the canvas "Pond with the Will" to the Taganrog Museum-Reserve.
At the presentation of the exhibition was attended by Arkady Dvorkovich, a representative of the government of the Russian Federation and Vasyl Golubev, governor of the Rostov region. According to the governor, the return of this picture was "the happy end of a sad story."
