This drypoint may have been intended for Christian Zervos' monograph on Léger, published by Cahiers d'Art in 1952, which calls for an etching to accompany the 60 head copies. In fact, these books were issued without a print. The plate, which is the property of the Christian Zervos estate, could have been done earlier than 1952, perhaps as an essai for projects between 1928 and 1935.
