Printer:
Horton Tank Graphics, Hadley, MA
Edition:
19
Impression:
"study 7/19" verso, center right sheet, pencil, artist's hand
Edition Information:
The hand additions on this composition vary across the edition.

In this edition, Bourgeois and the publisher designated each impression as a "study." However, throughout the catalogue, the term "study" describes photocopies and tracings that were used in the process of developing a composition.
Curatorial Remarks:
In consultation with MoMA's Conservation Department, the smudge to the upper right of the letter "S" has been identified as a stain, rather than a hand addition.

Eighteen of the edition of 19 impressions are illustrated to demonstrate the varying hand additions. No image of 2/19 was available as of 2017 cataloguing.

"Eyes" (2005) in Related Works in Other Mediums is a stencil drawing that looks very similar to this print. There are four "Eyes" stencil drawings with varying hand additions, not to be confused with this print.
