JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Etching, 1858, Glasgow 22, Kennedy 25; (only state), edition unknown. 4 3/8 x 5 5/8 in. Signed, dated and titled in the plate. Dedicated to Seymour Haden with "a Mon Viel Ami." This is an especially fine impression printed on light cream laid paper with full margins. (The watermark, Britannia, is listed as #60 (lifetime impressions) in the Art Institute volume II on Whistler's lithographs.) The condition here is very fine. Glasgow cites 56 known impressions which makes this an uncommon print. The initials "RB" appear on the verso in ink which is not listed in Lugt.
