double sided work - caricature sketch on paper verso
- Dr Cole has suggested that the two drawings date from different periods. The caricature of the voyeur was probably a spontaneous sketch done to amuse friends. Gaudier completed a number of such sketches sometimes of patrons such as Edward Marsh and Frank Harris. The likely date is later than the female nude on the reverse, probably 1913.
