This important work was a presentation copy from Pablo Picasso to Roger Lacourière, the printer who undertook the immense task of printing the monumental Vollard Suite. It is highly unusual to see hand-coloured etchings by Picasso and in general they were produced only for his closest friends and colleagues. Bridgette Baer states that Picasso signed and numbered 15 impressions of this work in red ink, she then cites this specially hand-coloured 16th impression which was given by the artist to Lacourière in her catalogue raisonné of Picasso, 'Painter-Engraver Volume II'.
