N.B. This composition reproduces a gouache painted in 1920 (see Zervos, IV.88). The Galerie Rosenberg, owned by the influential dealer Paul Rosenberg, was just up the street (the Rue la Boétie) from where Picasso and his then wife Olga lived in Paris in the late 1910s and early 1920s. Rosenberg and Picasso had a close working relationship and friendship.
The lower margin is slightly larger at 3/4 inches. Old Japan paper hinges to upper corners on verso.
