For New Museum, New York
New Museum is the only dedicated contemporary art museum in New York.
The fabric collage elements are sewn together, and are adhered to the paper with cross stitches visible at the four outer corners.
The paper texture is not documented because this work is not in MoMA's collection and could not be examined in person.
The plate dimensions also could not be documented. The plate dimensions given come from the T.P. impression in MoMA's collection.
According to printer Harlan & Weaver, Bourgeois used one oval plate, drawn on both sides, to make this composition.
