Notes:
[1] See Original Whistler List, Etchings, pg. 96, Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives. Society of the Butterfly [Company of the Butterfly] was James McNeill Whistler's London business through which he sold his works. This etching was given a registration number of 1906, the year when it was included in the Smithsonian Inventory, because there is no other record of its purchase (see Curatorial Remark 1 in the object record).
[2] The original deed of Charles Lang Freer's gift was signed in 1906. The collection was received in 1920 upon the completion of the Freer Gallery.
