In October 1959 Giacometti met Yvonne Marguerite Poiraudeau in a bar. She called herself Caroline and she was 21 years old whilst the artist was 58. Caroline was particularly adept at using her eyes seductively and soon she began to pose for the artist. Wanting a part of her that no one else could touch, he purchased the bottom of one of her feet as his exclusive terrain.He made a number of portraits of her. Lust suggests that this may have been Giacometti’s favourite among his lithographs because it was released in the largest signed and numbered edition of any of his prints. The work was also included in “Derriere le miroir” in an edition of 1500 unsigned lithographs on lighter different paper but with no margins.
