Curatorial Remarks:
The type of fabric could not be documented because this impression is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person. Dimensions of fabric works often vary slightly due to stretching. The sheet and composition dimensions were provided by the Louise Bourgeois Studio.

According to the Studio, the impression number is written on the verso in black ink on the lower seam for each impression.
