Edition Information:
This composition appears only once in the editioned series, in portfolio (2). It is not included in portfolios (1, 3-6). This impression is a variant of the only state, outside the published portfolios.

The fourth known impression of this composition is in MoMA's Collection (Accession Number: 45.2012). It is not illustrated, due to its similarity to the impressions seen here.

The editioned series of portfolios, "Les Arbres" (1-6), is not a traditional edition in that each portfolio is unique. Varying compositions, hand additions, and sheet sizes occur throughout the portfolios. Portfolio (1) includes 10 compositions, while portfolios (2-6) each contain 8 compositions.

Included in all 6 portfolios are 5 specific drypoint compositions that appear in the same order. However, the states of these compositions, and their hand additions, vary.

Portfolio (1) is different from all the others in the series, not only because it includes 10 compositions, but also because 5 of the 10 compositions are drawings. The drypoints are the same 5 compositions noted above as being in every portfolio; the drawings are new compositions entirely.

Portfolios (2-6) each contain 3 drypoint compositions on fabric, in addition to the 5 drypoint compositions noted above. The drypoint compositions on fabric vary from portfolio to portfolio.
