Curatorial Remarks:
The paper type and composition size could not be documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
Other Remarks:
Wendy Williams, Managing Director of the Louise Bourgeois Studio, remembers laying out words in different font sizes and positions, and faxing them to the artist as she considered various projects. The source drawing is an example of one of these mock-ups.
