"A girl waving a fan" c.1896

Glass mount; 34.8 x 24.6 s. with a butterfly; c.r. CRE WHISTLER, James McNeill; (American; 1834-1903) There is not much colour in this work, just two tones - flesh colour and dark pink. The butterfly, in surprising contrast, is green. The other way up, there are traces of a woman dancing, arms spread wide.
Birnie Philip Gift 1935 - not lendable.
