Louis was married on Friday, 4 July 1947. The inscribed date probably reflects the year Louis signed and dated the work rather than the year of its execution. Stylistically, it belongs to the large group of Stripe paintings dated 1961. Despite the inscription, no evidence exists to indicate that Louis released this painting during his lifetime.
