Recto, above; verso, below:
The copper plate bears on the verso the maker's stamp of 'HUGHES & KIMBER / MANUFACTURERS / RED LION PASSAGE / FLEET STREET / LONDON', who were Whistler's favourite suppliers. It was cancelled with fine zig-zag lines across the figure. It was cancelled by 1876. 10
10: See James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), auction, Sotheby's, London, 30 June 1876 (lot 663).
The cancelled copper plate was probably among plates bought at Whistler's bankruptcy sale by the Fine Art Society, London. It was published in the set of Cancelled Plates by the F.A.S. in 1879.
