Raz jeszcze kubizujaca praca Alicji Halickiej i dość dobry opis biograficzny domu aukcyjnego z wyjaśnieniem dlaczego zaprzestała malowania podobnych prac. Jest to olej na papierze.

During this time, she also met renowned Cubist painter and her husband, Louis Marcoussis (1878-1941). Halicka exhibited at the Salon des Independants and began to work under the influence of art dealer Leopold Zborowski (1889-1932), who was a strong proponent of Cubism. He began to represent her work, though her husband, strongly discouraged it. As a result, Halicka destroyed much of her cubist work and, from 1919 focused on collage and fabric design.
