Remarks
Maria Blanchard made six versions of this performance in 1924, including two large-format oil paintings, of which this one (version n°3) is one. Blanchard wrote in a letter to Franck Flausch (the first owner of this work) on 31/01/1925: "... Le Grand Vannier, pas de prix, car je croix qu'il est invendable. Je l'ai fait trop grand. Quelle bêtise de faire des tableaux si grands. Enfin, vous verrez si on peut le vendre, et pour le prix, on verra sur place ... "Blanchard alludes to her arrival in Brussels for the exhibition in the spring of 1925. The largest version (163 x 97 cm) is located in the Musée National d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
