After Picasso left the south of France for Paris in autumn 1912, Georges Braque stayed behind and made the first Cubist papier collé by gluing strips of wood-grain wallpaper onto a drawing. As soon as Picasso saw what Braque had done, he too began to incorporate cut paper into his Cubist compositions. This work is one of the most economical and elegant of Picasso’s early papiers collés. The American photographer and art dealer Alfred Stieglitz bought it for $150 in 1915 from the French artist Francis Picabia, who supported himself during World War I by working as an art dealer.
