Etching: PK342_01 (plate)
The copper plate bears the maker's oval stamp: 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' It is close in size to other figure studies (The Fan [375], Baby Pettigrew [374], Model Stooping [362]), as well as other works dating from 1887 (i.e. The Landing Stage, Cowes [309], Doorway, Sandwich [323], Bird Shop - Seven Dials [384]), and from 1888 (Beatrice Whistler painting from a window, Bourges [399], Three studies of women's heads [400]).
The plate was in Whistler's studio at his death and was bequeathed to Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958), who gave it to the University of Glasgow in 1935. It was cancelled posthumously with a diagonal line across the upper right corner.
