The New York Times described it as "a black, gray and white Cubist oil of Jacqueline Roque, Picasso’s second wife." On February 28, 2007, the painting was one of two stolen from the home of Picasso's granddaughter Diana Widmaier-Picasso. The other was Maya with Doll. On August 7, 2007, French officials announced that both paintings had been recovered. The paintings were found in Paris and the thieves, who were known to the police for previous cases of art theft, were arrested. Jacqueline Roque is best known as the muse and second wife of Pablo Picasso. Roque's image began to appear in Picasso's paintings in May 1954. These portraits are characterized by an exaggerated neck and feline face, distortions of Roque's features.
