Signed with a butterfly below the window at upper right.
The composition is basically complete; there are no clearly delineated figures between the posts or behind the railings above the waterline, except for the outlines of a head and shoulder above the railing at centre.
The impression reproduced above has not been located; there appear to be parallel scuffs or smears of ink in the lower right corner, but these were not etched on the plate.
A woman wearing a long frock is added at the doorway on the right, to the right of the flower pot, but her head and arms are only vaguely indicated; diagonal shading is added around the woman in the doorway; some lines on the steps above the waterline in front of the central house are reduced in strength; the reflections of the buildings are enlarged and darkened; considerable shading is added to the water in the foreground, most notably long left-to-right diagonals (\\\) at left, and right-to-left diagonal and vertical lines at lower right.
A museum stamp on the verso shows through at lower right on the recto of the impression illustrated.
The face and hair of the woman in the doorway to right of the flower pot are now indicated, shading is added to the bodice of her frock, and her arms are more clearly akimbo; darker shading is added around the woman in the open doorway; the figure above the railing to right of the standing woman is indistinct, but appears to also be a woman, and there are tiny patches of dark shading added to the wall and window behind her; dark shading is added to the bottom of the fourth window and to the top of the fifth window on the band of windows below the two windows at top centre; shading and more details are added to the window and boards below the butterfly signature; the open doorway at left is more heavily shaded; all the steps above the waterline in front of the central house are clearly delineated; the reflections below the houses are reduced on the left side and strengthened on the right side; shading on the water in the foreground is considerably reduced on the left, and two dark patches are added on the left as well as several others on the right; foul biting appears at the image edges and corners and is particularly heavy along the left edge.
The impression illustrated above, which was also used by Kennedy for his original first state illustration, has light brush and ink additions to the water at centre in the form of short vertical lines. 6
6: Kennedy 1910[more] (cat. no. 404 state 1/3).
Another impression of this state, reproduced above, is even more heavily worked in pen, brush, and ink, on the area around the figures and on the water and reflections in the foreground ().
