Figure Composition I

Figure Composition II

Figure Composition I and II, c.1917 (signed)
Pencil, 17.8 cm x 24.1 cm and 24.1 cm x 19.0 cm

Figures from these (separate) drawings seem to have been incorporated into La Plage c.1917, though these studies may not necessarily have been made with that final composition in mind. There seems to be no reason to associate them with Two-step c.1915, as was once suggested.
