Alice Butt (2) dates from the mid- to late 1890s, probably between 1896 and 1898.
It is dated from the technique and butterfly monogram, and relationship to Alice Butt (1) [YMSM 437]. 1 According to Whistler, he painted 'a little child called "Alice Butt"- charming - quite Italian in type' in Chelsea, but the painting was stolen from his studio in Paris and 'painted upon'. 2
