Fumette - JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
Etching, 1858, Glasgow 12 (v/V), Kennedy 13 (iv/IV); edition unknown. 6 1/2 x 4 3/8 in. Signed in the plate lower right. This is a fine impression printed on off-white laid paper. The margins are wide and the condition is quite good other than for a very faint suggestion of toning from an early mat opening. "Fumette," ("Eloise"); a working girl, a young seamstress or milliner, described in the Glasgow catalogue as a "grisette." She was also known to be a woman of vivid and fiery character.
