Personnage allongé II dates from one of the most productive periods of Julio González's career, when he produced a series of iron masterpieces that transformed modern sculpture following his collaboration with Picasso from 1928 to 1932. It was Picasso's influence that changed the direction of Gonzalez's career; prior to 1928 he was primarily a painter, despite his professional background in metalwork, but the experience of assisting Picasso in the execution of six metal sculptures during this period alerted him to the artistic possibilities that this medium presented.
