The two white stripes at each end are painted over with white paint on the front side.

This piece - exceptionally and like all the others originating from galleria Apollinaire and acquired by Guido Le Noci, director of the gallery - carry on the canvas, at the top and on the back side, the inscription, hand-written by the artist: "Made by Buren Milan October 1968", a stamp 'Galleriz Apollinaire Edizioni' and, in addition, on the stretcher, the notation: 'Apollinaire'.

This work is one of the ten paintings completed by Daniel Buren at the time of his one-man exhibition at galleria Apollinaire in October 1968, but was never shown, access to the gallery having been blocked during the whole exhibition.
