Little Evelyn - JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Lithograph, 1896, Art Institute of Chicago 146, Levy 159; from the pencil signed edition of 21(?). 7 x 4 3/4 in. Signed on the stone with the butterfly monogram. Signed in pencil below the image, also with the butterfly. This is a superb, lifetime impression printed on a light cream Japanese paper. The margins appear to be full and untrimmed. The condition is very good. On the verso is the square Birnie Philip stamp (Lugt 405). This lovely and popular print was published in The Art Journal in an edition of about 3,000 impressions. There was also a posthumous edition by Goulding of 16 impressions printed in 1903. This is a portrait of the daughter of Whistler's longtime friend, David C. Thomson.
