In this edition, Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression as a study. (Usually in this catalogue, the term study describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.)
The plate seen in panels (a) and (c) was also used in the illustrated book "Hang On" and in the edition "Around We Go." They can both be seen in Related Works in the Catalogue below.
State Changes and Additions:
Matrices: The plate seen in panels (a) and (c) is arranged in a different orientation for each panel.
The paper type and impression number could not be fully documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person. The plate dimensions are from the impression in MoMA's Collection. The sheet dimensions were provided by the Louise Bourgeois Studio.
