Sometimes, after Rose had pulled a proof, Norman would decide to cut the plate down to strengthen the image. An example of this is Merchandise. The first proof of Merchandise had nudes at the lower right and left of the plate and the elimination of these additional figures was obviously essential to the successful composition of the etching.
Merchandise was possibly inspired by Don Juan's travels in Turkey. It has the energetic air of an oriental bazaar, where everything from slaves to camels is for sale.
