Remarks:

Louis usually signed and dated paintings only when they were released for exhibition and/or sale. The dating often reflects this release rather than the date of the picture’s execution. Stylistic evidence indicates that this painting was made in 1961, although it was signed and dated in 1962, when first released for exhibition.
