Curatorial Remarks:
An amendment has been made to the cataloguing of this composition in Wye and Smith, "The Prints of Louise Bourgeois," 1994, p. 142. Soft ground etching has been removed as a technique. What appears to be soft ground etching is actually plate tone, and it appears the artist likely began with a plate containing abraisions.
