James Abbott McNeill Whistler
MAUNDER’S FISH SHOP, CHELSEA

About

Original lithograph printed in black ink on antique laid paper bearing the “Seven Provinces” watermark (Stratis 271). Hand-signed with the artist’s butterfly monogram in pencil lower right, also signed on the stone with the butterfly on the storefront. A superb lifetime impression of Spink’s second and final state of this rare lithograph Printed after the letters in the shop name were slightly scraped to make them more legible, from the edition recorded by T.R. Way in his 1905 catalogue to have been only 28, printed by Thomas Way (apart from the posthumous edition of 33 printed by Goulding in 1903). Catalog: Spink 37 ii/ii; Levy 42; Way 28. Sheet Size: 12 3/16 x 8 inches In excellent condition, printed on a full sheet. Whistler depicted Maunder’s fish shop in Chelsea at least four times, and in a variety of media. It appears first as an oil of 1880/85 entitled “Street in Old Chelsea, and was also the subject of two etchings of the mid-1880’s, “The Fish-Shop, Busy Chelsea” and “Little Maunder’s.” This lithograph, printed in October 1890, offers the most complete record of the quaint façade; in the other images an awning obscures the proprietor’s name and other details.
