Head of Whistler

Copper plate
The Whistler Estate, presented by Rosalind Birnie Philip, 1935
Hunterian Art Gallery, GLAHA 50519

No impression of this previously unrecorded portrait is known, nor is it absolutely certain that is a self-portrait, or was drawn by Whistler's wife Beatrice. The couple worked together in the studio, and their style became very similar indeed during the early years of their marriage. However, it is most likely that it was drawn by Whistler himself.
