    Collection of Marika Rivera, the artist's daughter
    Acquired directly from the above, circa 1998

    In Paris, Ehrenburg was a close friend of both Diego Rivera and Marevna, he wrote: Their characters were well matched hot-tempered, sensitive and childish.
    Following Ehrenburg's return to Russia in 1917 they would not meet again until 1960. He arrived in London to promote one of his publications, this nostalgic encounter resulted in her painting this watercolour the following year.
