It is known that under the picture there is another image - male portrait, painted by Picasso and found after X-rays, but due to lack of necessary funds to study the picture is constantly postponed.

The portrait depicts a man with a mustache. Scientists suggest that Picasso could do a self-portrait, but some people think that he painted a portrait of his friend, the tailor Benet Soler. The main objective of the study is to determine the identity of the model.

October 5 job, which shows a pale, thin woman, barely holding the iron iron, will be exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum exhibition "Picasso. Black and White."
