The number of panels and the hand additions on each impression vary throughout the edition of "Seated Woman." For comparison, see the Evolving Composition Diagram below.

In this edition, Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression as a "study." (However, throughout the catalogue, the term "study" describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.)

There is 1 known cancellation proof with a large "X" drawn across the composition from each corner of the plate.
