Background:
This composition was made into a lithograph titled "Jitterbug," which was published as a benefit for Artists Space, New York.

Artists Space is a non-profit alternative exhibition venue and center for discussion on contemporary art. It was founded in 1972 as a pilot project for the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), to provide a setting in which visual artists not affiliated with commercial galleries could show their work. Bourgeois was a Board member from 1997 to 2010.
