Edition Information:
This plate was issued in 2 separate editions both titled "Femme Miroir," and in the illustrated book "Hang On."

About the edition of 7:
This edition is made up of 2 single plates and 5 diptychs, all with varying hand additions. For comparison, see multiple impressions in the Evolving Composition Diagram below. Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression in this edition as a study. (Usually in this catalogue, the term study describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.)

About the edition of 3:
This edition is printed in black ink.

About the "Hang On" illustrated book edition:
Of the announced edition of 9 unbound and 12 bound, only 9 unbound examples were realized.

There are varying hand additions across the edition of illustrated books. Impression number 5/9 was also available for examination by MoMA cataloguers, but was not available for reproduction. In that example, plate 12 has selective wiping and red crayon additions.
Curatorial Remarks:
The hand additions, paper type, plate dimensions, and impression number could not be fully documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
