Recto, above; verso, below:
The copper plate was cancelled with crossed diagonal lines. It was probably among plates bought at Whistler's bankruptcy sale by the Fine Art Society, London. It was published in an album of Cancelled Plates ('Cancelled Set') by The Fine Art Society, London, 1879.
The plate was probably among those acquired in exchange for lithographs from Robert Dunthorne (b. ca 1851) by Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958). 10 The plate was given by Whistler's sister-in-law Miss Philip to the University of Glasgow in 1935.
10: Note by R. Birnie Philip, inserted in the album, Hunterian Art Gallery.
