This plate was issued as 2 separate editions, and in an illustrated book, all listed below.
Editions: "Couple" "Femme"
Illustrated book: "Hang On"
About the "Couple" and "Femme" editions: The hand additions vary from impression to impression. For comparison within each edition, see multiple impressions in the Evolving Composition Diagram below.
In both editions, Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression as a study. (Usually in this catalogue, the term study describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.)
The color of the hand additions, paper type, and impression number could not be fully documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
This composition was printed on a separate, smaller sheet and mounted to the sheet seen here.
