Specially manufactured transfer papers allowed Bonnard to make the drawings for his prints in his studio, which he then sent to a professional printer to be transferred to lithographic stones. The artist often placed his transfer paper on top of a piece of cloth so that the drawing would pick up the texture of the material underneath, an effect seen here in the overcast sky.
