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.
