Like the previous print, this can be dated to the early 1930s. In a letter dated 7 December 1974 in the Tate Gallery files, Julian Trevelyan wrote about the imagery of these works: "He never spoke to me about their significance, but I know that they were all derived from what he called guitar faces ... He was mad about jazz, and the idea behind guitar faces was of someone playing himself."
