I saw this for the first time while updating these pages in 2010 and it was rather a shock, unlike anything else I have seen by PM. If there is one work (or doodle) he wished had not survived him, I'll bet this is it. It is documented but not shown in colour in the Catalogue Raisonné (CR): I found it in the catalogue for the 1964 Mondrian de Stijl and their impact exhibition.

The CR notes that the "signature is probably of a later date, between 1927 and 1932". See a page of signatures here.

Bois shows a painting on the reverse of the B88 canvas, "On the reverse of both this painting and [B87], horizontal and vertical lines are visible which do not correspond to the compositions on the front. It is possible that they represent the early stages of a painting of c.1915-1916 that remained unfinished."
