Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler succeeded Ambroise Vollard as Picasso's dealer in 1912. This is the second of three lithographs drawn by Picasso at his home in Cannes on 3 June 1957. He drew with black litho crayon on transfer paper fixed to a wooden board, creating the vertical strips in the composition. Final printing took place at the studio of the master printer Fernand Mourlot, in Rue de Chabrol in Paris, where Picasso had experimented and collaborated on lithography since 2 November 1945.

Purchased from Messrs Berggruen and Co, Paris and presented by Friends of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, 1962.
