SALES & COLLECTORS
Shortly before he died, Whistler sold an impression of 'Café Corazza - Paris' to the London print dealer Robert Dunthorne (b. ca 1851) for £8.8.0. 12 Dunthorne sold it in the following August to Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) (). Whistler bequeathed one to his sister-in-law Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958) who gave it to the University of Glasgow (). It is likely that the other two impressions also came from Miss Birnie Philip. One was sold through Colnaghi's, London, to Margaret Selkirk Watson Parker (1867-1936) and bequeathed to the University of Michigan Art Museum (). Finally one was acquired by Louis B. Dailey (1904-2000), and sold after his death through Sotheby's and Susan Schulman to Peter and Paula Lunder who gave it to Colby College Museum of Art, Maine ().
