    Cohodas, Marvin, 1981, p. 57, fig. 10, text on p. 58: "A reduction in the repertoire of representational devices and further simplification and abstraction of the remaining images characterizes Maggie's third phase of figural art, dated 1927-1935. Human figures and butterflies appear rarely. The abstract motif derived from the tree is still commonly incorporated into the zigzag arrangement (Fig. 10)."
