Giacometti's original etching, signed in pencil at lower right, is a portrait of the poet André du Bouchet.

Giacometti had provided an etching for du Bouchet's earlier 'Le Moteur Blanc' (GLM, 1956) appearing to show the poet's desk or the floor of a studio covered in canvases.

The collection received the 'Prix de la Critique' in 1961, the year of publication.
