Remarks
Variations of the motif in the lower part of this drawing—a cluster of stalk-like protuberances bearing approximations of physiognomies or anatomical fragments (lips, eye, brain, and nose)—appear in several works on paper (see Related Works on Paper) and at the right edge of an untitled canvas dated to 1941/1942 (fig. 1).
