Edition Information:
The hand additions on this composition vary slightly across the edition. For comparison, see a different impression in the Evolving Composition Diagram below.

In this edition, Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression as a "study." However, throughout the catalogue, the term "study" describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.
Curatorial Remarks:
The color of the hand additions, verso inscription, and paper type 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.
