To his "cher Scherwashitzé": "Nous allons de nouveau travailler ensemble. Je n'ai probablement pas le plaisir de vous l'apprendre. Diaghilev a déjà dû vous dire de quoi il s'agissait. Je me suis déjà mis au travail, seulement je voudrais bien avoir une construction de la scène de Monte Carlo comme celle que vous m'avez faite pour 'les Fâcheux'. Cela a facilité beaucoup mon travail [...]" (transl: "We are going to work together again. I probably do not have the pleasure of being the first to tell you this. I am sure Diaghilev has already told you what this is all about. I have already started work, only I would like to have a construction of the Monte Carlo scene like the one you did for 'Les Fâcheux'. It made my work much easier [...]").

Braque designed for Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes the sets and costumes for Les Fâcheux (1924) and Zéphyr et Flore (1925).
