Impressions taken from this plate  (31)
Whistler dated this drypoint '1859' on the copper plate, although it actually looks rather like '1869'.
It is one of several large drypoint portraits of that period including J. Becquet, Sculptor [62], Fumette standing [59], Annie Haden [67] and Ross Winans [72].
