The hand additions on this composition vary from impression to impression, as do the titles. See both examples in the Evolving Composition Diagram below.
In “La Chanson” this composition is paired in a diptych with another composition. It is the only known appearance of that second composition within Bourgeois’s work. See that work is Related Works in the Catalogue below.
The color of the hand additions, plate size, and paper type could not be documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
