Lorca / Teresa de la Parra

The guy at the framing shop asked about the story behind this Lorca drawing. Lorca drew this and dated it in Havana, 1930. On the right hand side he wrote: "Sirvió de modelo Teresa de la Parra." (Teresa de la Parra served as model). She was a Venezuelan novelist, and google revealed that she did travel to Cuba, so this is probably her. The title of the drawing is "Theorem of the Woman Eating up the Moon."
