SALES & COLLECTORS
Whistler then sold an impression of Wild West: Indians on 3 May 1888 to Ross Revillon Winans (1850-1912), again for £6.6.0, through H. Wunderlich & Co. of New York. 17 He later sold one (under the title 'Buffalo Bill') in 1900 to Wunderlich's, still for £6.6.0. 18
Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) bought the first proof, which had been handled originally by Wunderlich's (stock no. a 38207), from Frederick Keppel & Co. in New York in 1904 (). Howard Mansfield (1849-1938) owned an impression, which was sold through A. A. Hahlo & Co., New York, to Harris G. Whittemore (d. ca 1937), and is now in Colby College, Maine.
