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.
Curatorial Remarks:
The verso inscription and paper type could not be fully documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person. The plate dimensions are from the impression in MoMA's Collection. The sheet dimensions were provided by the Louise Bourgeois Studio.

Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
