A rare print from Foujita’s early years in Paris during which time he was influenced by Cubism.

Nina Hamnett, Welsh by birth, was a flamboyant member of the bohemian Montparnasse set where she modeled for many artists including Modigliani. Later she moved to London to become an artist in her own right and was a prominent member of the Bloomsbury Group specializing in the decorative arts.
