Impressions taken from this plate  (12)
The copper plate has not been located. It was close in size to The Young Tree 285, Windsor (Memorial) 313, Binding the Hair 334 and Fish Women, Ostend 349.
It was almost certainly printed after Whistler's death, possibly by Mortimer Luddington Menpes (1860-1938). In a draft catalogue of Whistler's etchings, Joseph Pennell (1860-1926) wrote that Menpes owned the plate. 5
