Thames – Sketching No. 1

Price includes UK shipping.

1862, James McNeill Whistler

Edition Number: N/A

Supplied mounted with conservation standard mount-board and framed in refurbished gold-coloured frame.

This etching is part of a series of etchings Whistler made of the Thames. It is titled Sketching No. 1 and depicts a figure sitting beside a wide river. According to the Fitzwilliam Museum, Whistler made several etchings and drypoints on trips along the Thames in the summer of 1861, during visits to Edwin Edwards and his wife Ruth at Sunbury near Hampton Court. This print was made in August 1861 on an etching trip along the river with Edwards, Fantin-Latour and Haden. This etching was published in 1862 as part of a publication of illustrated poetry. You can read a bit more about this print in a news post, The States of Plates.

In excellent condition with just light ageing / wear to the very edges of the paper.
