Composition with Double Lines and Yellow, 1934

Originally owned by Emil and Clara Friedrich-Jezler, Z├╝rich, it was "probably burnt in transportation by car during World War II". (CR vol.II p370)

Perhaps the easiest of all the reconstructions, B242 was photographed with B241 (above) and Mondrian at 26 rue du Départ.

The title, Composition with Double Lines and Yellow, tells us the colour and the extimated size of 75x100m derives from B241 which has a diagonal of 113cm.

It is curious that when the Haags Gemeentemuseum used the photograph for the 1964 catalogue of their Mondrian collection, they chose to colour B242 red, fig 3.
