From Agnes Sorel's Walk1888
Etching and drypoint on laid paper (countermark, 'HK')
The Whistler Estate, presented by Rosalind Birnie Philip, 1935
Hunterian Art Gallery, GLAHA 46639
This elaborate etching is a panoramic view from the ramparts at Loches, looking out over the river Indres. Agnes Sorel, the official mistress of King Charles VII, is buried in the chteau. The etching was never published and is very rare; there are only three known impressions. It forms part of Whistler's so-called 'Renaissance Set', a series of views of buildings visited on the Whistlers' honeymoon.
