'Out of window' (1888, Beatrice Whistler (1857-1896)). 1
'Out of Window, Bourges' (1903/1935, possibly Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958)). 2
'Beatrice Whistler painting from a window, Bourges' (2011, Whistler Etching Project).
The earliest recorded title, 'Out of window', is considered too cryptic. The site-specific title 'Out of window, Bourges' may have been provided by Miss Birnie Philip, based on information from Whistler or his wife - these two titles are recorded in different hands on the envelope. However, the subject has been identified more fully and the title, 'Beatrice Whistler painting from a window, Bourges' is preferred.
