Notes The photograph, from Bois et al, shows B165 in the studio of Gret Palucca, Dresden. A 1926 letter from Mondrian to Oud is quoted in which he says, 'The work was sold to a danseuse who apparently has a white dance studio, and they wrote to me that now my canvas is hanging there as a point of rest when the danseuse takes a rest'.
