This relief was owned by Schoonhoven's friend and ‘nul’ colleague Henk Peeters. Peeters used this 1964 relief to create an exhibition installation in the form of a red, white and blue Dutch flag. Therefor he mounted this relief - turned a quarter turn - in a selfmade frame, together with a red relief by Armando and a blue relief by himself and on several occasions even with an orange pennant - made with (real or plastic) oranges by Jan Henderikse. For various exhibitions Peeters used different reliefs by Armando, Schoonhoven, Henderikse and himself, for the first time in the 1980 exhibition ‘België-Nederland’ in Brussels, Palais des Beaux Arts and the Rotterdam Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum (see the list of exhibitions to the left). It is evident that Schoonhoven created his relief as an individual work, originally signed and dated by the artist in 1964.
