Picasso’s large study is one of several for the painting Two Nudes, 1906, now at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The painting and its studies are significant transitional works between Picasso’s early output and his Cubist period. The strong geometry and heavily demarcated shading bring to mind the jarring poses that would form a dramatic part of his art after 1907.
