This work is one of three sketches in the Vilcek Collection, including Untitled (Study for Figure) and Untitled (Study for Roullier Galleries Exhibition Invitation), that Storrs created for an exhibition announcement at the Albert Roullier Galleries in Chicago. The exhibition ran from February 15 to March 1, 1935.
The form, which appears to be an abstracted figure, is based on a wood sculpture Untitled (Study for Figure), 1920. In 1935, Storrs cast the form in metal and gave it the same title Untitled (Study for Figure), both in the Vilcek Collection.
