Catalogue Note

Les Deux odalisques was made in preparation for a series of large, daringly colored canvases of one or more languorously reclining or seated women in various states of undress. This drawing bears the closest resemblance to a 1928 painting of two odalisques in the Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
