L'autre son de cloche relates to an oil of the same title from 1951 (Sylvester no. 771). Magritte also used the form of two overlapping orbs for La Valse hésitation, a recurrent image in his production of these years depicting two masked apples. A version of La Valse hésitation and the present work were among the sixteen small gouaches that Magritte exhibited at Rome's Gallery dell'Obelisco in January 1953. According to Magritte's letters to the gallery's owner Gasparo del Corso, all of these works were completed by November 26, 1952. According to Mrs. Mellon's archivist, it is possible that this work was acquired after the death of Paul Mellon.
