|Provenance: The original Whistler frame, which accompanies the lithograph, bears the label of William Guy, court hair cutter and perfumer to members of the royal family. The label is inscribed in black ink “I have given this picture signed Mc Neill Whistler to Miss Pike as a little memento April 15th 1899 William John Guy”. The frame also bears the label for the Chelsea picture frame maker and fine art dealer Alfred Davis who operated from 17 Kings Road, near Sloane Square. It is significant that Whistler lived nearby, in Tite Street.|
After his marriage to Beatrice Godwin in 1888, Whistler made a number of lithographs of her close family. This is a portrait of Whistler’s sister-in-law Ethel Birnie Philip whom he nicknamed “Bunnie”. She would have been around 29 years old when Whistler originally drew the plate. The drawing for the lithograph was made in early autumn 1890 and after proofing it was published in October 1890 in the new periodical The Whirlwind. The stone is preserved in the Hunterian Art Gallery, University of Glasgow.
