Black Lion Wharf - JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Etching, 1859, Glasgow 54 (iv/IV), Kennedy 42 (iii/III); edition unknown. 6 x 8 7/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate, lower right. This is an especially fine, crisp impression printed on light cream laid paper. The margins are substantial measuring about 5/8" to 3/4" and the condition is fine. Printed with light plate tone, this very pleasing impression is exemplary for this celebrated plate from the Thames Set. Whistler was fond of this plate and the image appears on the wall in the background of his iconic painting, "Arrangement in Gray and Black, No. 1; Portrait of the Artist's Mother."
