After celebrating New Year's Eve of 1901 in Barcelona, Picasso moved to Madrid, where he intended to stay for at least one year to work on two new publications: Arte joven and Notas d'arte. While there, he created more than a dozen pictures depicting women dressed to the nines in cheap confections that announce the wearer as a performer-theatrical, sexual, or both. Related paintings shown at Picasso's first exhibition in Paris, at the Galerie Vollard, such as the Woman in Profile (MMA 1999.363.58), may have been made in Madrid as well.
