Notes: Without actually dating this work, Bozena Nikiel archives it chronologically with others of 1935-40. The date circa 1924 is preferred here because of its very close relation to a number of circa 1923-24 works, such as Les Roses, February 1924 (AM-24-002); Le melon, 1923 (AM-23-005); La lettre et le vase de roses, 1913 (AM-23-003); Still Life with Mushrooms, c. 1922-23 (AM-22-005); and Nature morte aux poissons, 1924 (AM-24-006).
