New work includes numerous vertical lines across the top and right; fine horizontal and diagonal shading on both sides of the head; and vertical lines below her arms, to left of earlier lines.
The outline of the piano is extended to left; six vertical lines are added to left of the shadows under the piano; very fine vertical lines shade the cartouche behind the butterfly.
The woman's face and the top of her head have been lightly reworked, so that the nose is defined more clearly, and she looks more serious; a short diagonal line is added at the top of her fringe.
In the impression reproduced there is also a small diagonal smudge of ink in the background to left of her face.
A patch of vertical lines is added in the background panelling to upper left of her head; a row of short diagonal lines is added to the shading to right of her knee; the diagonal line at the top of her fringe has been removed or has worn down.
A row of short vertical lines is added in the background above the butterfly; the short diagonal lines shading the skirt at right are extended further; long diagonal lines cross earlier shading on the top of her skirt and her left arm; fine, close diagonal shading is added in the background to right of the figure and around her head; long vertical shading under the figure at right is extended.
