La Vieille au Loques (The Old Rag Woman) - JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Medium: etching and drypoint
JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Etching and drypoint, 1858, Glasgow 27 (iii/IV), Kennedy 21 (ii/III); edition unknown. 8 1/16 x 5 3/4 in. Signed in the plate, lower right, and along the bottom, Imp. Delatre, Rue St. Jacques 171. This is a very fine, lifetime impression printed with plate tone on a thin China paper. The margins are wide and the condition is very good. (There's a skillful and barely noticeable repaired split in the upper left margin which goes to the image but not within.) This early work was published in this state as part of the French Set. This was a popular print during Whistler's lifetime and that interest continues to this day.
