The condition is fine apart from a very faint suggestion of toning within an earlier mat opening and traces of an old adhesive, verso, along the top edge of the sheet. This outstanding early work by Whistler was published in the "French Set" in this state with the name and address of the printer in the lower right ("Imp. Delâtre. Rue St. Jacques. 171."). An impression of the first state has not been located by the Whistler Etchings Project.

Little Arthur -  WHISTLER

Little Arthur
JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER
American, (1834-1903)
Etching, 1857-58, Glasgow 8 (iv/IV), Kennedy 9 (v/V); 61 impressions are noted in the Glasgow catalogue. 2 3/16 x 2 in. Signed in the plate, lower left. This is a fine dark impression printed on light cream wove paper. The margins are wide measuring about 1 to 1 3/8 in. The condition is fine apart from very slight toning along the top edge of the sheet. Although Kennedy records this as the fifth state, there are only four states as described in the online Glasgow catalogue. "The copper plate may have been reduced in size in London, and Delâtre's name removed, for the fourth state, when Whistler and Haden undertook to print the edition. It was then printed for the English edition of the 'French Set.'" There were two formal editions of the "French Set," ('Twelve Etchings from Nature'); the Paris edition of twenty impressions (3rd state), and the English edition of 50 impressions in the fourth state. The dramatic inking of the plate conveys a Rembrandt like flair of detail and shadow; successfully rendered on a very small scale.

Oudezijds Achterburgwal, twee deuren in het midden (...two doors in the middle) -  WITSEN

Oudezijds Achterburgwal, twee deuren in het midden (...two doors in the middle)
WILLEM WITSEN
Dutch, (1860-1923)
Etching and aquatint, circa 1905-1906, de Groot 115 (iv or v of V); twenty proofs and a numbered edition of 95. 10 1/4 x 13 1/2 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is excellent. This stellar work is from Witsen's series of Amsterdam views which date from the period beginning in 1901 until 1907. He had produced a series of views of Dordrecht just before these. In discussing a similar Dordrecht view, Cliff Ackley states, "The close cropping and careful parallel alignment of pictorial elements with the picture plane give the Witsen strong abstract overtones, looking ahead a couple of decades to the right-angle geometries of Mondrian's purely abstract works." (See pages 178-179 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau (2014).
