Exécuté à Fourques le 29 septembre 1936.

L'authenticité de cette œuvre a été confirmée par Annie Guédras.

Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down and affixed to the mount with transparent plastic corners at all four corners. There is an horizontal repaired tear (approx. 5cm long) running from the lower part of the left edge on the figure's hand (located 9,5cm from the lower edge). There are a few flattened creases in places, most predominately to the upper part of the composition. The sheet is slightly light stained with some tiny dots of minor foxing in places. There is some mount staining along the extreme edges, most predominately along the upper and right edges, related to previous mounting. This work is in overall good condition.
