For Ambroise Vollard's third "Album des Peintres-Gravures," unpublished.

Cézanne based this color lithograph on his painting that dates from 20 years earlier. The print was commissioned by the successful French art dealer and publisher Ambroise Vollard, who represented many well-known French artists of the late 1800s, including Cézanne, Renoir, and Degas.

Vollard’s albums comprised works by “painter-printmakers” rather than by artists who were printmakers by profession. Many Impressionist artists were intrigued by the challenges and potential of lithography, etching, and engraving, and used the printmaking medium to extend their reach beyond painting.
