The copper plate has no maker's name. It was close in size to several plates including The Fan 375, Beatrice Whistler painting from a window, Bourges 399, Three studies of women's heads 400 and Baby Pettigrew 374.
The 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 across the lower left corner.
