Ploog compared a panel from Dawson's 1910 triptych "Prognostic" to Kandinsky's "Improvisation 26," painted nearly two years later. Ploog's research has indicated that Dawson would likely not have had any knowledge of Kandinsky or exposure to his work until 1913, when the International Exhibition of Modern Art (known as the Armory show) came to Chicago.
