About

Rotherhithe (Originally published as Wapping). 1860. Etching. Kennedy catalog 66 state iii; Glasgow catalog 70. state vi. 10 3/4 x 7 3/4 (sheet 12 7/8 x 9 1/2). Series: "Sixteen Etchings or Scenes on the Thames and Other Subjects." (Thames Set) plate 5. Illustrated: Guichard, British Etchers, 1850-1940; Keppel, The Golden Age of Engraving; Salaman, The Great Painter-Etchers from Rembrandt to Whistler and Modern Masters of Etching: Whistler; Guichard, British Etchers, 1850-1940. One 2-mm missed inking spot between the two ship masts on the right; otherwise an excellent proof. A rich impression printed on antique cream laid paper. Signed in the plate. Housed in an archival silk-covered mat with a gold lip in an elegant 19 5/8 x 16 5/8-inch Whistler style gold leaf frame. Rotherhithe was made on the balcony of the Angel Inn at Rotherhithe, looking northwest toward the City; the dome of St. Paul's is visible on the horizon at the far left. While James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) achieved fame as a painter, he was also a serious and innovative printmaker, producing some 450 etchings and about 180 lithographs. His imagery and the technical means that he developed for etching and for printing plates influenced not only his fellow printmakers in Europe and America but also many others who followed.
