Black Lion Wharf
Signed and dated in the plate, lower right. This is a fine, strong impression printed on light cream laid paper without a watermark. The margins are most likely full with a deckle edge on three sides. The condition is excellent. This print, along with the Limeburner (Glasgow 55), are probably the two best images from the Thames Set. Black Lion Wharf was published with the rest of the set in 1871 by Ellis and Green. This is one of Whistler's most popular early etchings.
