Curatorial Remarks:
The paper type, plate dimensions, and sheet dimensions of this impression could not be documented because this impression is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person. The plate and sheet dimensions are from the published impression in MoMA’s Collection. The mount dimensions were provided by the Louise Bourgeois Studio.
