Proof after the editioning of version 1, states I-III, in the series of portfolios, "Les Arbres" (1-6).
Version 2 was not issued as a published edition at any state.
State Changes and Additions:
Changes from version 1: composition rendered on a new plate, in drypoint; image simplified and inverted. Changes from version 2, state III in drypoint: horizon line, figure, branches, and roots further delineated and reinforced overall. Changes from version 2, state III by burnishing: abdomen refined.
The second known impression of version 2, state IV could not be reproduced because this work is not in MoMA's collection and could not be examined in person.
