The woman in this couple, an important theme in Picasso's later years, has both eyes on one side of her face. Picasso first used this principle of simultaneously representing two aspects of a subject in his painting 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' (1907) and continued to employ it throughout his life.

Hello, might you be your research be aware of any studies for this painting? https://www.boijmans.nl/en/collection/artworks/4033/couple
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered
There is no study about this specific painting, but I did find a book on the internet that might include this painting. It's about the last 20 years of Picasso's life and career. (https://www.amazon.com/Late-Picasso-Paintings-sculpture-1953-1972/dp/0946590893)
I hope I have been able to help you further with this! Kind regards, Sofie
