Notes: Initially incorrectly date circa 1923-1925 in the Tajan catalogue.

The stylistic, technical and iconographic characteristics of this painting are consistent with Metzinger’s work of the 1930s and 1940s. The most notable feature is Metzinger’s amalgamation of background and foreground elements, where sections of the figure appear to fuse with the surroundings (most often landscapes of Greece or the south of France, such as Bandol, where the artist spent much time with his wife Suzanne. Note, the hair blends with mountains, arm with the beach, her hand with the armrest, and so forth.
