Longshore Men - JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Etching, 1859, Glasgow 52 (iii/IV); Kennedy 45 (i/I), edition unknown. 6 x 8 7/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate, lower right. This is a fine, crisp impression printed without much plate tone. The paper is Japanese and the margins are probably full and untrimmed. Very good condition apart from a couple of ink smudges in the margin and two other tiny spots of discoloration. In this, the third state, the verticle lines through the hat of man in the back with the pipe have yet to be removed. This successful print was never part of a published set, i.e. the Thames Set, even though it fits nicely within that theme.
