This monotype is 1 of only 2 impressions made by the artist in
1933 and shows a flute player sitting next to a serene sleeping model (most likely his young lover Marie-Thérèse Walter). Picasso made monotypes by painting on glass and then pressing paper over his composition. The transferred painted image became the monotype.
