Notes This being a 'black and white' painting, there is no real problem in using a B&W image from Elgar and this is the only reproduction listed in CR. The picture has appeared in many exhibitions and so a more recent image might be found in due course.
The installation photograph from CR shows B223 (only part in the enlargement), B224 and B227 at the L'Association 1940 exhibition, Paris, June 1931. The other works are by Van Doesberg (2), Hélion (2), Kupka (3) and Gorin (4). I take it that the two on the right are not PMs. Photographer unknown.
