Abstract: An explicit formula for a canonical splitting $ s:Q\mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^ \cdot }) \to \mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^ \cdot })$ of the projection $ \mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^ \cdot }) \to Q\mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^ \cdot })$ of the bar construction on a commutative d.g. algebra $ {\mathcal{E}^\cdot}$ onto its indecomposables is given. We prove that $ s$ induces a d.g. algebra isomorphism $ \Lambda (Q\mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^\cdot})) \to \mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^\cdot})$ and that $ H(Q\mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^\cdot}))$ is isomorphic with $ QH(\mathcal{B}({\mathcal{E}^\cdot}))$.
