[19th July 2012]
In the twelve months since the last post on this page I have extended the scope of the exercise to include all of PM's work and so the approach on this page will have to change. There are at least small B&W images from the Catalogue Raisonné for all entries but, unlike the abstracts, there will be no progress beyond that small image for many of the works.
I'll try a table summary:
|A1-A49||49||22||27||45%||A18, A31, A35|
|A95-A148||44||21||23||48%||A96a, A120a, A100-A111 flowers|

After getting another copy of the Mondrian CD and visiting the V&A Library, I am getting pretty close to finishing the Complete Mondrian. so I'll keep score here.
[29th Jan 2011] This pdf details what is left to obtain. They can be categorised as
[30th Jan 2011] Breaking that down:
[1st Feb 2011] A contact by chance from a Mondrian enthusiast in Tokyo has opened the possibility of a copy of a B208 postcard from Kyoto (the gallery would not send it outside Japan). I need to get some more contacts: [
Belgrade done], Essen and Cottbus.
[27th Feb 2011] The catalogue of the Mondrian and De Stijl exhibition at the Pompidou Centre has provided missing images (B195, B197 and B212) plus improved images of many other paintings. In addition, in dismantling The Collection, I think I have found a postcard of B208, but I am still hoping for confirmation from Tokyo.
[19th Apr 2011] Confirmation on B208 received - it was posted just hours before the recent earthquake. A reproduction of B200 has also been found.
[6th Jun 2011] I'm trying to wrap up the Reconstructions so that I can self-publish a small booklet on the process. I'll go with the information I have and hope to refine the solutions over time.
