NOTES
1. Joosten includes several letters from Mondrian and Slijper to one another, which demonstrates some level of friendship between the two men. See J.
Joosten, Catalogue Raisonne of the Work of 1911-1944, Santa Monica, 1998, p. 287-288.
2. The catalogue raisonné states that M. Knoedler & Co. (an art dealer) owned the picture briefly in 1956 and that the work was eventually acquired by Ira Haupt in 1956, however the exhibition catalog "The Sphere of Mondrian," 1957, indicates that the painting was lent to the show by M. Knoedler & Co. thereby making the catalog raisonne incorrect. The catalog entry for "Piet Mondrian 1872-1944: Centennial Exhibtion," (1971) states that Ira Haupt did not own the painting until 1959. As a result of these discrepancies, we can conclude that M. Knoedler & Co. owned the painting until at least 1957 and that Haupt did not purchase it until 1959.
3 This is supposition based on footnote number 2.
4 New York, Parke-Bernet Galleries, Inc., "Abstract and Other 20th Century Paintings," January 13, 1965, 27 (Composition with Great Blue Plane, and Red and Yellow) (color illus.). This was an auction of the Ira Haupt estate. The information was obtained form the auction catalog.
5 This information is supported by the catalog "Piet Mondrian 1872-1944," (1965) that states that the image was lent by the Sidney Janis Gallery.

Philadelphia Museum of Art: A. E. Gallatin Collection, 1952
Provenance:
Referred to as Schilderij No. 1: Lozenge with Two Lines and Blue 1926 in Catalogue Raisonné
Consigned by the artist to Sophie Küppers, (1891–1978), Hannover, Germany (?)1926 [1];
Deposited with Provinzialmuseum/ Landesmuseum, Hannover c.1926 and certainly before 1937 [2];
Confiscated by the National Socialist authorities and stored in Niederschönhausen (registered under number 7035), 1937 [3];
Assigned to Karl Buchholz, Berlin / Buchholz Gallery (Curt Valentin), New York, 1939 [4];
Sold to A. E. Gallatin, The Museum of Living Art, New York, 24 August 1939 [5];
Bequeathed to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the A. E. Gallatin Collection, 1952.
1. Sophie Küppers (later Küppers-Lissitzky, after she married the artist El Lissitzky in 1927) asked Mondrian to consign works to her for sale in Germany. He sent four canvases, one of which was purchased by Alexander Dorner, the director of the Hannover Provinzialmuseum. ‘Composition with Blue’ must have likewise been consigned to Küppers in Hanover after it was shown in the ‘Onafhankelijken’ exhibition in Amsterdam in 1926.
2. Alexander Dorner (1893-1957) recalled that Mondrian's ‘Composition in Blue’ hung in the famous Abstract Gallery (Abstraktes Kabinett) of the Hannover museum designed 1927-28 by Lissitzky, but there is no evidence that the museum owned the painting. However, since there is no doubt that ‘Composition with Blue’ was at the Hannover museum in 1937, it may have been placed there by Küppers though still on consignment from the artist.
3. Joosten has determined that ‘Composition in Blue’ was sent to Schloss Niederschönhausen outside of Berlin, where a salesroom was set up to dispose of the most ‘exploitable’ works of ‘Degenerate’ art (i.e., those with the highest potential resale value on the international art market), (Joosten, Catalogue Raisonné, vol. 2, p. 323-324).
4. Karl Buchholz appointed to sell confiscated works and this painting was assigned to him. He, in turn, sent it to his pre-war partner Curt Valentin (1902-1954) in New York. In correspondence with Valentin in March 1939 Dorner identified a painting on offer as ‘a private one [that] belonged to a private person. So it really is a stolen picture’. Joosten believes it to be ‘Composition with Blue.’
5. Mondrian wrote to Ben Nicholson on 6 December 1939: ‘[Gallatin] has bought also one of my two Hannover museums pictures, rejected by Hitler’ (Joosten, p.323). His acceptance of them in Gallatin’s collection is suggested by a letter from the artist to Gallatin of 16 December 1940 states, ‘What do you think about that I restaured the Museum pictures during the Noël-holiday; then they are not missed by the public’, writing to Nicholson on 4 January 1941, ‘I restaured also my pictures in Living Art Museum’ (Ibid.)
