Background:
In the late 1980s, when publisher Peter Blum began the portfolio project "Anatomy" with Bourgeois, he sought the assistance of printer Judith Solodkin, of SOLO Impression, a longtime friend of the artist. Solodkin suggested Harlan & Weaver as intaglio printers and she served as supervisor for this project and a number of individual prints at that time, among these, Untitled, "To Hide," "Ambition," and "Shooting Stars," all seen below in Related Works in the Catalogue.
Curatorial Remarks:
This impression was heavily inked and wiped to emphasize the burr.
