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."

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)."
