Unfinished Portrait of Lady Haden a Butterfly Signed Lithograph by Whistler, C. 1895

Here is your chance to own an original Whistler signed by the artist with his famous butterfly signature. This lithograph is generally only found at museums and educational facilities.

This is a portrait of Whistler half-sister, Deborah Delano Haden, whom he held a great affection for throughout his life. When this drawing was executed, Deborah Haden was approaching seventy and was almost blind. This lithograph is in its second state, and was printed by Thomas Way in 1895. When exhibited this work was called "The Blue Bonnet", it is also titled simply "Lady Haden". It is listed in Way's catalogue of Whistler's lithographs as W 143.

It is framed in a simple black frame, which was standard for this time in history. I have not looked at the piece outside of the frame, but from what I can see, it appears to be in good condition. The plate size is 12 ¼" x 8 ¼".
