Edition Information:
Plates 1-7 are used in the edition "Look Up!,” and in several unique variants, as well as in the series of installation sets, “La Rivière Gentille” (1-3). The plates are numbered according to their positions (from top to bottom) in “Look Up!,” the only composition that uses all seven plates. “Look Up!” can be seen in the States row in the Evolving Composition Diagram below.

The unique variants and the series of installation sets “La Rivière Gentille” (1-3) use only “Look Up!” plates 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 (not 4 and 7). Some unique variants use a single plate while others use a combination. All known unique variants have hand additions and can be seen in the Unique Variants row in the Evolving Composition Diagram. The unique variants in “La Rivière Gentille” are organized separately; panels from all 3 sets are in rows according to which combination of plates is used.
Background:
Benjamin Shiff, the director of the Osiris imprint, collaborated with Bourgeois in a highly experimental phase of printmaking that occupied the last years of her life, from 2005 to 2010. He first established a working relationship with the artist in the 1990s, but the late period is particularly noteworthy for the innovative and complex large-scale projects that evolved at that time. Shiff made use of professional workshops for printing, but he oversaw the creation of the printing plates as Bourgeois worked on them in her home studio. He also provided assistance as she added extensive hand additions and texts, and as she combined individual compositions into multi-panel works.
Curatorial Remarks:
Plates 1-7 were each numbered by the artist on their versos. However, MoMA cataloguers renumbered the plates according to their positions (from top to bottom) in the full composition "Look Up!" See verso inscriptions on plates 1-7 for the artist's numbering.
