The copper plate is close in size to The Traghetto 233 and The Garden 194, though slightly smaller. The verso is distinguished by small flakes of copper, and the plate was probably made for Whistler in Venice. 5

The copper 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.
