Proof
This term generally refers to any impression pulled before the official printed edition of an image. The artist may make changes to the image after examining a proof, much like an author makes changes to a rough draft of a manuscript before sending it to the publisher. If the composition is altered after the proof, the proof becomes a "state". Read more about proofs: artist's proofs, Bon à Tirer, Hors Commerce, printer's proof, trial proof.
