Edition Information:
This edition, along with A.P.s, T.P.s, and P.P.s, comprises 23 works, each with hand additions that transform the hair of the female figure. Outlines of the face and upper torso, and generalized vertical elements that indicate the outlining of hair, are in drypoint. The necklace, when it appears, and the varied delineations of hair, are drawn in ink.

An example of the most simplified composition in this group of prints appears first in the Evolving Composition Diagram below, followed by examples of other variations Bourgeois created across this edition. This order does not indicate the order in which the works were completed, as that is not known.
