Christie's London. Sale 15471 Impressionist and Modern Works on Paper. 28 February 2018.

Executed in 1925, during a period in the last few years of Juan Gris’ life which Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler considered the most fruitful of the artist’s career, this work on paper was used as the drawings for a lithograph that Gris produced as illustrations for Raymond Radiguet’s Denise, published by Galerie Simon the same year.

Gris’ graphic works are not numerous and the artist took up engraving fairly late in his rather short life.
