Impressions taken from this plate  (69)
The copper plate has not been located. It was close in size to a number of etchings, mostly portraits, including C. L. Drouet, Sculptor 035, Jo 087, Jo's Bent Head 088 and Ratcliffe Highway 065.
The plate was probably reprinted in the1890s (not by Whistler) or after Whistler's death. It was cancelled with four horizontal lines and two diagonal lines running from corner to corner. It is now in the Library of Congress. 9
