Literature: Het werk wordt niet genoemd in de catalogue raisonné van Mondriaan. Volgens deze bron begon Piet Mondriaan op 14-jarige leeftijd, in 1886, serieus te tekenen en schilderen onder leiding van zijn oom Frits Mondriaan, die in den Haag woonde (zie pag. 114 onderaan pag.).
Exhibited: Winterswijk, Museum Villa Mondriaan, 'De vroegste Mondriaan', 3 aug.-2 nov. 2021; Amersfoort, Museum Flehite, 'Naar de natuur. Mondriaan en de Haagse School', 8 okt. 2022-29 jan. 2023.

Before Mondrian made the abstract compositions with which he became famous, he drew and painted landscapes, figures, flowers and still-lifes in a naturalist style. Between 1895 and 1908, he gradually detached himself from exact pictorial representation and experimented with colour, composition and a simplifying of forms. This ultimately led to depicting nature in abstract vertical and horizontal lines and planes in primary colours.
