In a letter to Octave Maus, Whistler indicated his preferred arrangement for the hanging of eight works, and enclosed a sketch, which he had not intended to be made public. 1 However, the drawing was reproduced in the catalogue. It shows Arrangement in Black and Brown: The Fur Jacket [YMSM 181] as the centrepiece, with Nocturne: Black and Gold - The Fire Wheel [YMSM 169] underneath it. In all, Whistler sent two oils, four etchings and two pastels.
