Recto, above; verso, below:
The copper plate of The Little Cloak bears the maker's oval stamp: 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' It is among Whistler's smallest plates, the same size as Little Maunder's 273 and close in size to Dieppe 251 and Little Chelsea (Memorial) 315.
It remained in Whistler's studio at his death and was given to the University of Glasgow by Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958) in 1935. It was cancelled posthumously with a diagonal line across the lower left corner.
