Messrs Dowdeswell, after consulting the newly published catalogue by Frederick Wedmore (1844-1921), requested impressions of a number of etchings, including this one, in February 1887. 12 In response, Whistler printed two impressions of 'The Steps' on 4 September 1887. 13 These may have been the two in black ink mentioned above (, ).
