Little Terrace, Luxembourg Gardens is an etching, with no drypoint.


It is very rare. Two impressions were printed in black ink on cream Japanese paper (, ), and one, which was kept by Whistler, in black on ivory laid paper (). All were trimmed to the platemark and signed on a tab with the butterfly and 'imp.' to show that Whistler had printed them.
