Curatorial Remarks:
Due to the nature of the mounting and framing of this work, the verso could not be examined. In this case, a photograph of the signature and impression number inscribed on the verso is affixed to the back of the frame.
Other Remarks:
According to Raylene Marasco of Dyenamix, Bourgeois sometimes looked at a composition printed in one technique before choosing a different technique for an edition. In this case, the small impression (version 1) is printed digitally, and the edition (version 2) is printed in screenprint.
