DESCRIPTION:  It was printed in by Lacourière in a limited edition of 250 impressions in 1933 and published by A. Vollard, Paris. A further 50 impressions were printed on large Montval paper.
This is the 72th plate in the Suite Vollard and was released on the 3rd of May 1933.
The work presents a Nude Model looking on two sculptures: One of Marie-Therese in an athletic pose and the other is a self-portrait of artist.

This etching is from Picasso's most important series of etchings known as the Suite Vollard.
The Suite Vollard, created between 1930-37, was named after it publisher, the French art dealer and critic Ambroise Vollard. Picasso and Vollard shared a close working relationship up until 1910; however, after this date Vollard was no longer Picasso’s dealer though the two continued to collaborate on publishing projects. In 1930, Vollard, encouraged by the success of two earlier ventures, ambitiously commissioned 100 plates from Picasso and by 1937 the plates were completed and given to master printer Roger Lacouriere to print. The entire edition comprises 3 copies on parchment, 50 copies on larger format Montval paper (50 x 38 cm) and 250 on smaller format Montval paper 44.5 x 34.0). Tragically, Ambroise Vollard died in a car crash 22 July 1939 leaving the project temporarily suspended, until a greater part of the edition was purchased by the print dealer Henri Petiet. After World War II Petiet engaged Picasso to sign a certain number of sets, and this continued up until 1969 but ceased with the publication of the 347 Series. Hence, a large number of the prints from the edition of 250 remain unsigned.
