Other

The Alexander family recalls that the window was aat the clinic of Dr. Alexander and that Modigliani left the painting as a present to suprise his friend, but some experts made mention of the similitude with the windows at the studio Ochre and the style is much more advanced than the one used in 1913, specially in the treatment of the painting application.
