It is very rare and was not exhibited during Whistler's lifetime.

Impressions were shown at the Grolier Club in New York in 1904 and in the Whistler Memorial Exhibition in London in 1905. 6

6: New York 1904a (cat. no. 109); London Mem. 1905 (cat. no. 372).


Whistler kept one impression, which he bequeathed to Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958), who in turn left it to the University of Glasgow. Howard Mansfield (1849-1938) owned one (Graphic with a link to impression #K1230104), which was sold through A. A. Hahlo & Co., New York, to Harris G. Whittemore (d. ca 1937); it was later acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. An impression (Graphic with a link to impression #K1230102) said to be from the Cox collection (possibly that of James Cox-Cox (ca 1849- d.1901)) was bought by Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) from Obach & Co. of London on 11 July 1903 - six days before Whistler's death - and eventually bequeathed to the Freer Gallery of Art.
