Seymour Standing under a Tree - JAMES A. MCNEILL WHISTLER - etching and drypoint

American, (1834-1903)

Etching and drypoint, 1858-1959, Glasgow 30 (ii/III), Kennedy 31 (ii/III); edition unknown. 5 1/4 x 3 7/8 in. Signed in the plate. This is a fine, early impression of the second state of three printed on cream laid paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is also fine apart from a suggestion of toning in the mid margin area from an early mat. This early print is described by Katharine Lochnan as, "Whistler's first landscape etching." (See: The Etchings of James McNeill Whistler, Yale University Press, 1984; page 69.) The online Glasgow catalogue cites only 29 known impressions from this plate. (In the third state the legs have been redrawn to be closer together.)      $2,600
