Seven of the eleven narrow strips of collaged paper overlap the sheet which supports the collage, giving the work a slightly larger overall dimension than that of the sheet, which measures 16¾ x 15 (43 x 38).

The strips which extend beyond the support were said by the artist not to have had any significance in relation to the structure or format of the collage itself. As for T01837, T01838 was not a study for a painting.
