Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) had already bought an impression from Wunderlich's, and he lent it to the exhibition organised by the Caxton Club in Chicago in 1900 (). 13
After Whistler's death an impression - possibly Freer's - was shown in the comprehensive Grolier Club show in New York in 1904. 14
SALES & COLLECTORS
Howard Mansfield (1849-1938) owned an impression by 1909, but it is not certain where he acquired it nor where it is now. 18 The only other known impression was later acquired by Lessing Julius Rosenwald (1891-1971), who gave it to the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. ().
