’…all of a sudden, dusk and darkness set in… Wim is in the studio again with his beloved model Dablig, experimenting with all kinds of dark red, golden and checkered cloths, in order to start a new painting. Painting outside has become impossible because of the unsettled weather.’
(Maria, in a letter from Denpasar, July 16, 1939)
