JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Drypoint, 1859, Kennedy 61, (i/III). Exceedingly rare in this state. 9 x 5 15/16 in. This is a superb impression printed on china paper, before the signature and date. The margins are wide and probably untrimmed. The condition is very good. There is a small speck of foxing on the platemark, left side, center, and a small break in the paper, lower left, most likely from the printing process. This exceptional proof impression is a remarkable example of Whistler's ability to capture likeness and personality with great ease and spontaneity. Ex-collection: W.B. Dickerman, New York. (See Lugt 673.) Another first state impression is in the Freer Collection in Washington.
