This is a drypoint etching from 1879, plate signed with Whistler's trademark butterfly monogram in the lower left corner. Catalog: Kennedy 181. State IV/IV. Plate measures 5 3/8 x 7 7/8 on 8 7/8 x 11 1/2 inch antique laid type paper with a grape watermark. Provenance: Harlow, McDonald & Co, 667 Fifth Avenue, New York. The Athenaeum referred to this print as "View Near Fulham" in 1879, which caused some confusion. A fine impression of one of Whistler's attractive depictions of sailing vessels on the Thames, just up the river from where Whistler lived in Chelsea.
