From "Picasso and Things," Cleveland Museum of Art:
"After going to the town of Ceret in the French Pyrennees on 18 May 1912, Picasso painted this still life, showing how close he felt to Spain and his family and friends in Barcelona. Earlier in May he had painted the two oval still lifes, which were souvenirs or memories of his trip with Braque to Le Havre in April. On a smaller scale but using the oval form and some of the same motifs, including letters, Picasso produced this "Spanish Still Life."
