The copper plate bears the maker's oval stamp: 'HUGHES & KIMBER (LIMITED) / MANUFACTURERS / LONDON E.C.' It is close in size to other figure studies (The Fan 375, Baby Pettigrew 374, Model Stooping 362), as well as other works dating from 1887 (i.e. The Landing Stage, Cowes 309, Doorway, Sandwich 323, Bird Shop - Seven Dials 384), and from 1888 (Beatrice Whistler painting from a window, Bourges 399, Three studies of women's heads 400).
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 upper right corner.
