Picasso? line drawing question

Trying to find an image that Picasso(?) did of a seated woman's back. Think the image was done with three lines (right outline, backbone, right buttock) and recall an apocryphal story that someone watching him do it said - that only takes you seconds, to which the artist said seconds to do, years to master. Anyone? Citrine? Beuhler?

Kurt Vonnegut created a similar piece I always liked.

Thankyou - By Jove, I think you've got it! Not quite as i remembered it - thought there was a backbone line, but my memory is wildly suspect.
