Background:
Stanley William Hayter founded the print workshop Atelier 17, which he relocated from Paris to New York during WWII. Bourgeois worked there intermittently until 1949, enjoying the company of an array of international artists. Bourgeois found Hayter intimidating as he demonstrated engraving, but remembered feeling useful in the shop because she could facilitate communication with the artists who spoke only French. "Le Cauchemar de Hayter," seen below in Related Works in Other Mediums, is another work that references the printmaker.
Curatorial Remarks:
The color of 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.
