The copper plate is the same or close in size to a number of plates used by Whistler, including Resting by the Stove [372], which dates from about 1887, and also many plates etched in the following year, including The Hangman's House, Tours [393], Place Daumont, Tours [390], The Market, Bruges [354], and Café Luxembourg [436].
The copper plate of Petite Rue au Beurre, Brussels 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 bottom left corner.
