JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Etching with drypoint, 1858-59, Glasgow 30 (ii/III), Kennedy 31, (ii/III); edition unknown. 5 1/4 x 3 7/8 in. Signed in the plate. This is a fine, early impression of the second state of three printed on thin cream wove paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is also fine. This early print is described by Katharine Lochnan as, "Whistler's first landscape etching." (See: The Etchings of James McNeill Whistler, Yale University Press, 1984; page 69.) The online Glasgow catalogue cites only 29 known impressions from this plate.
