The collection that the piece comes from, and where it had remained until the Museo Reina Sofía acquired it, adds additional colour to the drawing’s artistic interest. Its owner was Josefina Attard, better known as Fina de Calderón, and nicknamed “the girl with the crutches” by Lorca, a friend of her family. Fina dedicated her poem Fuego, grito, luna (Fire, Cry, Moon), to Federico and in return he gave her the drawing, as can be seen in the inscription in the top right. Characterised by a freshness and spontaneity of execution, the drawing is highly representative of its author’s output.
