Curatorial Remarks:
The plate dimensions provided are those of the impression on paper (Accession Number: 1521.2012). Dimensions may vary slightly because of hemming and stretching fluctuations.

According to Bourgeois's assistant, Jerry Gorovoy, Bourgeois often referred to her drawings as "feather thoughts" and related them to memories.
