Lithograph, 1950. 500x645 mm; 19 1/2x25 1/2 inches, full margins. Artist's proof, aside from the edition of 50. Before Mourlot's first state (of 2). Inscribed "188 entre 1 et 2 etat", lower margin. A very good impression.

According to Reuße, there are only two known impressions in this state. He remarks, "That the proof was pulled before and not after Mourlot's first state can be seen on the two spots of the girl's left upper arm which are visible in both Mourlot's first and second state." Bloch 675; Mourlot 188; Reuße 543.
