New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 2006, p. 123: "Although Vollard seems to have had this remarkable series of paintings in hand as of summer 1907, he never showed it in its entirety." See also Rémi Labrousse and Jacqueline Munck, "André Derain in London (1906-07)," Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen and Barnaby Wright, eds., André Derain: The London Paintings, exh. cat. London: Courtauld Institute of Art Gallery , 2005, p. 14: "The completion of thirty canvases is not documented until July 1907, when the painter sent his dealer a summary of accounts in which he identifies one lot of twenty-six canvases and one of four, all at the (very modest) price of 150 francs (evidenly Derain had not painted the fifty canvases originally planned)."
