About this artwork

This etching is the framed print seen on the back wall of Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1, though its identification would only have been possible for those intimately familiar with Whistler’s printed oeuvre. It is believed that Whistler did indeed have a framed impression of this work installed in his house in London on Lindsey Row, where his mother sat for him. It therefore serves as a reference to the space itself, the artist’s studio, as well as his early acclaim in the field of printmaking.
